Slow art? It will ‘blow your mind’

To get people in the mood for slow art, Christie’s, the V&A and the Natural History Museum have been offering yoga and sound meditation baths before visitors step foot into their exhibitions. But rather than putting them in a trance, it’s all about switching on their senses.

“When the Natural History Museum was built and founded it was called a cathedral to nature and people used to come in and take their hats off in awe,” says Lucy Woodbridge, head of events at the Natural History Museum, who likens slow art to sacred looking.

“And this is what we want: a place of learning and stopping and a deeper level of engagement and just allowing people to see more.”
