Verbal Description + Tactile Tour
Saturday 19 September, 12pm-1.30pm
We invite visitors with vision impairment to join us for a tour of the exhibition HERE&NOW20: Perfectly Queer.
Exhibiting artists Nathan Beard and Colin Smith, and curator Brent Harrison will share insights into their artworks and the exhibition. A trained guide will also deliver descriptions of the visual elements of exhibition and the artworks.
The tour will include carefully controlled tactile opportunities with gloves to explore sample items, maquettes and other materials.
Tours are free to attend and open to friends and carers.
