Mindfulness in Art Contemplation. The Story of a Rothko Experience
Echarri, Fernando; Urpi, Carmen
Journal of Museum Education, v43 n1 p35-46 2018
The nature and scope of the experiences offered to museum visitors are varied and changing, given that museums make it possible to explore new methodologies for unleashing and transmitting meaning during visits. In this regard, at the University of Navarra Museum, we researched the possibilities for mindfulness as a contemplative technique to train ways of looking at artwork and generating meaning. Bearing this purpose in mind, we selected Rothko's "Untitled" (1969) as an ideal work with which to begin to develop and analyze an experience with students in a course on art therapy and mindfulness.
