Slow down, observe, relax.

Take time to slow down and deeply observe works in the exhibition Turned Back: Filaments of Renewal. Guided by Agnes docents, this contemplation practice allows for relaxation and new insights.

At Deep Looking, we aim to facilitate conversations around artworks shaped by participants’ unique perspectives, rather than promoting a singular reading. We ask that participants come with a willingness to listen, share and collaborate.

Turned Back: Filaments of Renewal presents works from Emebet Belete’s series Turned Back. Celebrating the life of her mother and the intergeneration of Ethiopian women whose stories are woven throughout the fabric of time, this exhibition of acrylics on canvas with installed audio and textiles contemplates a private world beyond the objectifying gaze.

The docent program is generously supported by the Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation.
