Contemporary Braille Graphics
23.12.2017 - 25.03.2018
Volgo-Vyatka Branch of NCCA as part of ROSIZO,
Exhibition 'Contemporary Braille Graphics'
Today's society quite rightly focuses on adapting people with disabilities to modern living conditions, but no less important is their equal access to the cultural heritage. The exhibition 'Contemporary Braille Graphics' sets precisely these objectives and is designed to help blind and visually impaired people to perceive contemporary art. At the heart of the exposition are three-dimensional models, which can be touched and carefully examined by touch.
All the works presented in this project are united by the idea of graphics.
In the project 'Contemporary Braille Graphics', creators and storytellers are not only a museum and an artist, but also blind and visually impaired people, they are given the opportunity to make judgments about a particular work. The museum leaves the freedom of interpretation and action in relation to the work, not giving the audience clear paths and not imposing certain emotions. The main task of the project is to find out whether an individual interpretation, based on the visitor's own experience and principles, will lead to the possibility of a common experience of art, and, as a result, to solidarity.
