Dialogue Beyond Sight Exhibition is a cross disciplinary and multisensory collaboration featuring the works of visually impaired artists and performers.

This exhibition brings together emerging and mainstream artists and performers in response to the theme “dialogue”. Collaborators examine the links between artist and audience, and practitioner and practice, presenting an eclectic range of artworks that include paintings, illustrations, sculptures and installations, with performances that include recital, storytelling and classical songs.

Dialogue inherently exists within creative practice and can sometimes be misunderstood or at other times completely disregarded. Artists and performers lead the authorship in interpretation of their works so it is objective, and not subjective.

Supporting the idea of objective interpretation, a series of scheduled workshops led by visually impaired artists, performers and other contributors will provide an opportunity to find out a little more about their practice.

For those visitors requiring a quiet tour of the exhibition, please contact us for an individual tour designed for your needs. Booking is essential as places are limited. Email

Dialogue Beyond Sight: Dialogue is curated by Andrew Mashigo and Rachel Gadsden. It will be accompanied by a large print and Braille catalogue and includes a programme of workshops at the venue.
