Slow Art Day is a worldwide celebration of art that encourages people to look at art SLOWLY – and thereby experience art in a new way. Together with more than 151 international art venues, the Zabludowicz Collection celebrates the experience of looking at art using a slower pace.

Join us at 2pm on Saturday 27 April to spend time looking at 'Untitled (9 ½ weeks)', an artwork made by Albert Oehlen, consisting of the 1986 Hollywood film '9 ½ weeks' projected over any one of his paintings. For Slow Art Day the film will be projected onto 'Nr 9', a semi-abstract canvas.

Oehlen says of the work 'You want to see the movie and you forget about the painting but actually you stare at my painting for an hour and a half and it is burned into your eyes' (taken from Painting from the Zabludowicz Collection: Part I exhibition leaflet).

Popcorn and beer provided.

Please note the film contains some adult content.

FREE. Booking recommended.
