Vis-ability

11th May - 4th August

QUT Art Museum

Bringing together a selection of recent acquisitions from the QUT Art Collection, Vis-ability 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 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, 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.

Artists include: Lyndell Brown, Charles Green and Jon Cattapan; Elisa Jane Carmichael; Dean Cross; Karla Dickens; Emily Ngarnal Evans; Julie Fragar; Elsie Gabori; Denise Green; Dale Harding; Louise Hearman; Dai Li; Karla Marchesi; Raquel Ormella; Catherine Parker; Tom Risley; and more.
