Local artist Dominique Rey will speak at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Thursday, March 10 at 7 p.m.
Rey’s talk will be included with Gallery admission and is an Arts Ambassador known for her legacy project, “Do Less, Slowly.” The series of billboards throughout the city encourage Winnipeggers to do less and do it slower.
“My project is an action, invitation and call that was conceived as a way for people to experience the benefits of slowness firsthand, and to act as a catalyst for integrating this practice in people’s everyday life,” said Rey. “The Slow Movement has become a worldwide phenomenon. From food production to food consumption, to health, sex, work, leisure, education, transportation, childrearing, urban planning, and the environment, the radical idea of slowness is transforming cities everywhere.”
A few days prior, the WAG will host a conversation with artist Eva Stubbs and curator Andrew Kear on Sunday, March 6 at 2 p.m.
