Grace Ndiritu Reimagines the FOMU Collection: EVENTS PROGRAMME
As part of the exhibition Grace Ndiritu Reimagines the FOMU Collection, FOMU organises a series of guided tours, slow focus sessions, talks and other activities. View all the events in the FOMU Calendar.
For Grace Ndiritu Reimagines the FOMU Collection, British-Kenyan artist Grace Ndiritu constructs an original photographic universe of paintings, textiles and interior design inspired by female artists O’Keeffe, Modotti and Albers. It represents a radical and holistic reinterpretation of the classic collection exhibition.
SLOW FOCUS SESSIONS
Every first Sunday of the month, FOMU hosts a Slow Focus session in its exhibitions. During Slow Focus, you look at art more slowly and consciously. It is an invitation to unwind and take time for yourself. Participants learn in a safe environment that everyone looks differently. This makes Slow Focus very accessible: everyone can participate, regardless of prior knowledge. By looking at a photo together for a long time and philosophising about it, your view expands and you see more.
- Places are limited, please book early.
- We will gather at 10.30 a.m. sharp in the entrance hall of the FOMU. Come preferably ten minutes earlier, so you have enough time to put your things away.
- Dates: 5 March, 2 April, 7 May, 4 June, 2 July, 6 August, 3 September, 1 October, 5 November, 3 December 2023 and 7 January 2024
Important: the sessions will be held in Dutch. We also welcome people who are learning Dutch.
