Small advice when visiting a museum
When walking through a museum you just want to look, enjoy and feel the art.
I care but also do not care for museums. When visiting a museum I walk around, my mother sometimes calls it running, look at some things, look at other things and continue. I don’t really stop often. Don’t get me wrong I like walking around in a museum but in less than a minute I know if the art thrills me one way or the other. And often that’s the only art I want to spend my time with.
If the title of the exposition really triggers me I will read the story that is written at the beginning. If not I walk around and make my own story let my own creativity flow.
You easily see when I am really intrigued by an art piece, I will stop, I will read the sign and I will take a moment.
These pieces of advice are for people like me. Who like museums but don’t really have the patience, energy or interest of reading every single piece. Or maybe you even think that you don’t like museums; if that is the case, next time try this advice.
Some basic advice
If there is really nothing that thrills you, you can turn it around:
Find the piece of art that you dislike the most in the exhibition you are visiting. Try to find out what the artist itself tells about it. Ponder your dislikes, is it the colours, the style, etc.
You can find yourself surprised how interesting your dislikes can be.
Find your inspiration and get inspired!
