With Seeing Hands

""

Opening night: Friday, 6 April, 6pm to 8pm

Exhibition dates: 7 April - 20 May 2018

Talks and performances: Saturday, 21 April, 2pm

Fayen d’Evie and Bryan Phillips, Carolyn Eskdale, Heather Lawson, Carmen Papalia and Nathan Liow, and Sam Petersen. 

With Seeing Hands is an accessible and inclusive exhibition that presents a range of multisensory works made by artists with and without disabilities.

The audience is invited to explore non-visual artworks including tactile paintings, a pressed plasticine intervention, and a hanging installation.

The accessible exhibition design includes artworks presented at wheelchair height, with information available as audio recordings and tactiles.

Participating local and international artists explore issues of accessibility and disability, and question the dominance sight plays within art experiences.

With Seeing Hands provides the opportunity for people of differing abilities to have rich engagements with art, moving beyond simply looking, to touch, listen and feel.

The Mind on Fire is a site-specific chalk drawing on the walls of the Incinerator Gallery Atrium that considers the ‘nature’ of aesthetics and the sensory, exploring what we are naturally drawn to, and what we consider to be ‘natural’ anyway.

The Eureka Project draws on the contested terrain of the Eureka Flag to explore contemporary Australian societal issues. Each hand stitched flag acts as a mirror, playfully reflecting a range of themes relating to Australian identity.

In 2018 the Incinerator Gallery will present off-site exhibitions in a range of spaces across Moonee Valley in council-owned facilities.

Starting at the Crown Street Stables cafe space, Incinerator staff will curate a display of works from Moonee Valley's art collection.

The new exhibition program is an opportunity to liven up new spaces with ever changing artwork throughout Moonee Valley, and it is also an opportunity for the community to engage with visual art in new and maybe even surprising encounters.
