Royal Cornwall Museum

The revolutionary contemporary art exhibition, “Touching Art Touching You” will be launching its multi-sensory, interactive art experience at the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro, from 26th July to 4th October 2008. “Touching Art Touching You” is a fresh and unique concept on the arts landscape. The exhibition breaks through traditional hierarchies & barriers in the arts by actively encouraging all works to be explored through touch. By shifting the established rules of art appreciation from sight (look) to the sense of touch (feel) the gallery experience instantly becomes an intimate, fresh and liberating art experience

"Over throwing years of not being allowed to touch art. Quite mind bending".
Exhibition visitor

“Felt nervous and excited touching the art. Taboo/freedom/liberating."
Exhibition visitor

All works in the exhibition are made accessible to a diverse audience through touch, audio-description and large print & Braille labels and catalogues. The exhibition design considers a broad range of physical access adjustments.
