Seeing by Touch - Inclusive Exhibition

Merit Award 2020
Seeing by Touch - Inclusive Exhibition

Seeing by Touch is one of the few exhibitions where you can touch everything—all 120 artworks of visually impaired students, 26 classic sculptures and one spatial installation!

The inclusive temporary exhibition is designed in such a way that visitors can tactilely experience the artworks of visually impaired students. The exhibition is completely adapted to blind and sight-impaired persons, and because of the extremely low budget all the production materials were recycled from previous museum exhibitions.

Art also has an important role to play in healthcare spaces—and in a three-part series, we explore its power in supporting wayfinding, creating a sense of place and easing stress for patients, families and staff.
