An innovate exhibition, designed to encourage engagement with the visual arts by people with disabilities, opened to the public at the Irish Museum of Modern Art on Thursday 17 June 2010.
Altered Images is a touring exhibition which comprises of works from the collections of South Tipperary County Council, Mayo County Council and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. All works have been selected with the aim of creating an exhibition which is accessible, interactive and inclusive for all, but especially for those with disabilities.
The exhibition seeks to enhance people’s engagement with the works through the tactility of relief models, by listening to the audio and artist’s descriptions and by viewing the sign language interpretation by Amanda Coogan.
Each art work is accompanied by a multi-sensory display in order to provide meaningful access. In addition, an audio CD and Braille documentation of the large-print exhibition catalogue are available on request.
