Event Details

Join us for another event in this series of intimate, 30-minute conversations about a single work of art in the museum’s galleries. This week, we will be discussing a work by Miguel Angel Ríos featured in our exhibition “Words/Matter: Latin American Art and Language at the Blanton.”

Museum admission is always free on Thursdays. On the third Thursday of each month, the museum remains open until 9 pm.

The Blanton is located at the intersection of Congress Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.  Paid parking is available in the Blanton/Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Parking is $4; bring your ticket with you to the front desk of the museum for payment and validation.

    Miguel Angel Rios’ Slow Learning invites a journey,a silent conversation, a slow descent into meaning. Falling with Father becomes an aerial dance through semi opaque clouds and symbols. Languid. Time elongates as the beloved (earth) reaches upward to grasp the observer participant lover. The point of contact (communion) becomes understanding. Understanding resolves into love.

    The invitation to slow learning moved me to become aware of the frantic pace at which we live, denying any experience of depth or creation of our own true meaning.
