Touch Art Fair at Marylebone Gardens, London W1
17 October 2013 to 20 October 2013
Thursday - Saturday 12-7pm
Sunday 20 October: 12-6pm
Touch Art Fair is the first ever tactile art for the blind and visually impaired in the UK. Featuring new work by Jake and Dinos Chapman and leading haptic artists from all over the world. Daily drawing workshops, talks and tours available
In a society where everything is at your fingertips but you are still not allowed to touch, spect-actors are invited to participate in a sensory fête. They will be encouraged to re:activate their forgotten senses and to experience art in a more intimate way.
The Touch Art Fair challenges conventions and makes art accessible to people with sight loss through touch.
It will take over a former BBC building in London on 35 Marylebone High Street, W1U 4QA, just a short walk from the Frieze Art Fair.
It is open to the public from 17-20 October 2013 and features work from international artists including: Jake and Dinos Chapman, Abigail Burt, Axelle Russo, Gillian A Mcfarland, Loz Simpson, Nicole Wassall, Phoebe Stannard, Scratchadelia, Steve Chang Hee Lee, Sungshin Olivia Yim, Victoria Karlsson and Younghee Lee.
Further artists, exhibitors and special events will be announced shortly...
