In your own time
If, like me, you’re sick of the fast lane, and all that comes with it, especially fast art, then you should head, at a sedate pace, to the Slow exhibition at Plymouth Arts Centre.
Slow? You ask. Why Slow? This is what the blurb says: “By slowing things down, critical reflection is made more possible in contrast to the uncritical speed of change represented by urban regeneration and wanton consumer capitalism.”
These people are speaking my language! And they’re working in this whole Slow Movement thing, you know Slow Food, Slow Cities and the like. What’s more these people actively seek participation - Slow Films, Slow Talks. There was even a Slow Meal, but you missed it.
So pop along, but do it in your own time, the show runs till March 18.
