Exhibition probes sight impaired access to art

It was inspired by research on how museums make art inclusive

Artists collaborated with the King’s Business School and other academics on an art exhibition to spur debate around how to make art more accessible to blind and partially sighted people.

A collection of 10 artworks, called Layers of Vision, have explored different forms of vision representing personal lived experiences of visual impairment with the aim to question common practices around access and disability inclusion in the arts.

This was inspired by ongoing research into how museums are making art accessible to those with sight loss, and included artists Aaron McPeake, Alice Christina-Corrigan, Bianca Raffaella, Clarke Reynolds, David Johnson, Fae Kilburn, Mickel aka Ebony Rose Dark, Natalie Doig, Sally Booth and Zoe Partington.
