Vis-ability: Artworks from the QUT Art Collection
Bringing together a selection of recent acquisitions from the QUT Art Collection, Vis-ability: Artworks from the QUT Art Collection has been conceived as a project to broaden understanding of the lived experiences of people who are blind or with low vision. Drawing on research in QUT's Creative Industries Faculty, Vis-ability: Artworks from the QUT Art Collection proposes alternative ways of engaging with the Art Collection, considering how technologies can deepen our understanding of vision and challenging our sight-driven experience of art.
Visitors will have the opportunity to experience tactile models and audio descriptions, in conjunction with selected works on display. Vis-ability: Artworks from the QUT Art Collection 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.
