Slow Art Day: Outside the Palace of Me

Sat April 02, 2022 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free with admission. No registration required.

Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art.

This year, join Education Manager Farrukh Rafiq to reflect on some of the social, political, and environmental themes explored in the exhibition Shary Boyle: Outside the Palace of Me. Drop in between 1 – 4 pm to participate in close looking activities and engage in discussion about the works.


A multi-sensory installation, Shary Boyle: Outside the PalaceĀ of Me explores how we see ourselves and each other through drawings, ceramic sculpture, life-sized automatons, two-way mirrors, coin-operated sculpture, and an interactive score.

Reimagining the museum as a collective performance space, Canadian visual artist and performer Shary Boyle mines histories of craft and obsolete technologies to connect our current realities to legacies of the past. Reversing the frame on her uncanny characters and their destabilized audience, she urges viewers to think critically about how we create both ourselves and the world we inhabit. Learn more
