Jamie Brunson is featured in a new exhibition at SJMA titled Your Mind, This Moment: Art and the Practice of Attention. This really interesting show is referred to by the curators as an experiment. From the museum’s web page, We offer the following: “Fifteen seconds. That’s the length of time the average museum visitor spends in front of a work of art—much of it reading the wall label. Even the Mona Lisa commands only fifteen seconds of attention. That’s half the time we wait for an iPad or smartphone to power on…Your Mind, This Moment: Art and the practice of Attention presents works of art as objects of meditation. With input from an advisory group of artists who are also meditators, the gallery will be designed as an intimate space that encourages quietude.”
