Vis-ability


About the exhibition

How do people who are blind or have low vision experience art? How can we 'view' art without sight? Drawing on a selection of recent acquisitions from the QUT Art Collection, this exhibition explores how cutting-edge technologies can deepen our understanding of vision, and challenge our sight-driven experience of art.

Visitors will have the opportunity to experience tactile models, audio descriptions, and augmented reality, in conjunction with selected works on display. Vis-ability aims to increase the visibility of the QUT Art Collection, while broadening audiences' perception of 'visual' art. It brings to light that which is unseen, and draws on different perspectives, positions and senses, to encourage different ways of seeing.
