Artist and Curator Talks

If you love the exhibition then come along to an artist and curator talk

Artist and curator talks are a great way to experience the gallery and share behind the scenes information about the artworks, artists and ideas conveyed in the exhibition.

With Seeing Hands Artist and Curator talk: Saturday, 21 April at 2pm

Join us at the Incinerator Gallery for the With Seeing Hands artist talks with Fayen d’Evie, Sam Petersen, Nathan Liow and Carolyn Eskdale.

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

Participating local and international artists explore issues of accessibility and disability, and question the dominance sight plays within art experiences. Exhibition visitors are invited to touch and explore tactile and sound works on display including tactile paintings, directional sound works and a pressed plasticine installation. The accessible exhibition design features interpretive material communicated using text, audio recordings and Braille. 

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

Entry is free.
