About this Event

Slow Art Walks

Aligned with ‘alternative ways of being’ and mindfulness, Slow Art Walks invite visitors to take the time to slow down and reflect, not to rush, but to take time to unpack and understand.

Matrialing the Imaginary

As part of the Alserkal Art Week activities, artist-curator Mo Reda conducts a Slow Art Walk which is aiming to focus on and highlight the power of the imaginary, the imagination, and the visionary aspects of the artists's productional proccess.

Art is a methodology of expressing visions, imaginations, desires, and dreams which also acts as a bridge between the imaginary / the visionary and the material-based tangible surrounding reality. The tour will highlight the power of material selection in terms, texture, dimensions, colours and methodologies of implementation which are all foundational in materialising and presenting the ideas.

The walk will allow the participants to reflect on a selected number of works that orbit around the power of the imagination in the art-making process. The Walk is an interactive meeting and invites the participants to highlight and collectively reflect on an artwork during The Walk.

Mo Reda is a curator whose research examines the relationship of the individual non- reality versus collective agreements.
