Sense of Space Audio Descriptions

Following the success of Sense of Space at South Hill Park we take this chance to extend the run of the exhibition with continued access to the Audio Descriptions for 43 works by participating artists.

Originally artists wrote an audio description of their work to assist those who struggle to see physical art. The descriptions were recorded and made into videos for each piece, including a photo to help link the description to the artwork, by RGA member Emma Major, herself visually impaired. These could be accessed from the venue via a QR code.

Since then many more unforeseen positive effects have been realised. This project resonated profoundly with many of the artists saying that having to think about their work in this way was really beneficial to their practice and that they would continue to do so in the future.

It is also a way for those who couldn’t visit the exhibition in person to experience the work, or for those who wanted to revisit certain works and find out in the artist’s own words more about the piece.

As one viewer said “I’ve really enjoyed every step, every image, and every voiced description. What a great way to enjoy your deeply personal, ever-inventive, and very creative collection of paintings, prints, scissor-craft, and clay works.”
