Video Documentation of Performance: Slow & Steady Wins the Pace, Art Basel Miami Beach, 2011

"We will Walk at a Slow, Quiet, Meditative Pace Through the Aisles of Art Basel Miami Beach on Saturday December 3, 2011 from noon to 8pm, the hours of the art fair. Our Pace, an endurance performance, is an intervention offering any of the attendees, from gallerist to collector to spectator, a break from the chaotic, spectacle side of the Art Market. It will allow you to get more intimate to the art itself and perhaps become Art if but for a suspended moment in time.

Please Join Us and Have Fun.

Thank you,

Diedra Krieger + Laura Mylott Manning"
