Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

BSL Gallery Tour

Led by Olivier Jamin, from a Deaf perspective, this exhibition tour will be carried out in British Sign Language. Using his skills and experience working in the art sector and being an artist himself, Olivier helps audiences gain insight into an exhibition.

altered is a major solo exhibition by British sculptor and disability rights activist, Tony Heaton OBE. The exhibition explores Heaton’s sculptural practice from his early disability rights activism and his initiation of the National Disability Arts Collection and Archive (NDACA), to more recent work that includes direct stone carving and neon text pieces. With wit and self-awareness, Heaton uses a range of materials and techniques to produce intelligent and thought-provoking work that is a reflection of the artist’s own biography.

The tour will focus on different pieces of artwork, and will be interpreted by a BSL interpreter into English.
