MA Curation Practices students are exhibiting works by Holly Holder, Caroline Mawer and Sarah Newman, three visually impaired artists, in their innovative exhibition entitled Insight.
The exhibition was curated with the intention of shedding light on how visually impaired artists use and experience colour, as well as these artists’ experiences of visiting museums as visually impaired people.

The exhibition was curated by Sarah Beaumont, Beth Rastrick, Natasha Clarke, Lily Sherratt, Eleanor Kelly, and Alex Anderson, and includes guides and information from the students on how to put together an accessible exhibition with a particular focus on visually impaired visitors.
The curators told us:
“It’s been enlightening to learn about other people’s experiences and a true privilege to be able to share these.”
“Working together, we were all able to learn new skills and approaches from each other that will support us during the rest of the course”
