S l o w R e a d s is a drop in book club hosted by the Museum of Socially Engaged Art (MuSEA). Folks get to activate MuSEA’s mobile library by relaxing at the Atlanta Contemporary and reading selected texts out loud to each other. It’s a space to slow down, be with other folks interested in art, and learn and chat about socially-engaged art projects happening around the world. Folks can participate to read at each session or just come and listen. Some snacks will be on hand and seating will be available but bring your yoga mat if you want to get extra slow. S l o w R e a d s is happening at the Atlanta Contemporary on select Saturdays at 2 pm. RSVP is required for each session. Texts will be shared at each session and will correspond to the themes of the current exhibitions.


The Museum of Socially Engaged Art (MuSEA) is an experimental museum in Tucker founded by artist Roshani Thakore set within an occupied house.

MuSEA examines the role of museums in contemporary culture, bringing community-shaped programming to metro Atlanta and joining the effort to enrich Atlanta’s socially engaged art community. MuSEA elevates conversations around art, activism, community engagement, and education at the neighborhood scale. It is interesting in what a museum can mean to the people who live beside it with an emphasis on supporting and collaborating with local, national, and international artists working in the field of social practice.

MuSEA’s mobile library brings social practice ideas and discussions to different social spaces across metro Atlanta. MuSEA is pleased to partner with the Atlanta Contemporary from February 10 - May 11, 2024.
