On Saturday, April 6, CIMA will proudly participate for the fifth consecutive year in Slow Art Day! This wonderful initiative was launched in 2008 by the CEO Phil Terry, who, after spending an hour one afternoon observing Hans Hoffman’s Fantasia (1943), developed a new appreciation for closely observing art that he hoped to share with others. Now a global event, its mission is simple: “help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.”

The principle of slow art professes that when all people, regardless of their prior knowledge or expertise, “look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries” that have the potential to foster profound “passion and creativity.” The slow art approach having been central to our ethos from the start, CIMA always encourages visitors to carry out this active process of observation; however, on Slow Art Day, it will be celebrated.

So on Saturday, April 6, we invite you to slowly experience our current exhibition, Metaphysical Masterpieces 1916–1920: Morandi, Sironi, and Carrà. Visit CIMA during regular open hours (from 1pm to 6pm), challenge yourself to spend 10 minutes in front of one or two of the paintings that most inspire you, and share your distinct insights with us, your friends, or other viewers. You may also join us at 11am or 2pm for espresso and a guided visit of the show – our “slow art”-looking tour led by our fellows in residence.
