Four times a year, Vleeshal organises an activity for its loyal members – inside or outside the exhibition space – that revolves around contemporary art. The annual crash course Help, contemporary art!, focusses on the matter of looking at contemporary art. Often, people feel uncomfortable with contemporary art, as they feel as though they do not understand it. Yet, ‘not understanding’ does not have to be a problem. Asking questions is something contemporary artists often aim at; questions that have multiple answers.
On Saturday December 16, guest speaker Julia Mullié gave a crash course on looking at contemporary art, through Marina Pinksy’s exhibition Strata of the Slow, Buried Trench, which was on view in its final weekend. Julia Mullié guided our Friends along the works of Marina Pinsky to discuss questions such as; "what do I see?", "what do I associate this work with?" and "does my interpretation make sense?"
