For these visits, we are in the presence of mediator Ana Isabel Gonçalves and audio describers from AR Produções. Together they will provide an artistic and historical contextualisation of the exhibition, and at the same time, show a visual description of the highlighted pieces. Some of the pieces will be available to be touched, subject to supervision, and others will have a raised embossed version that will also be available to participants on these visits.
The visit offers a broad view of the context of the exhibition and its design in two galleries, as though they were two halves of the same brain. In each room, we will find themes that bring together several works presented in the same space. There are also pieces that stand out visually and physically. We will give a special emphasis to these and therefore we will have a dedicated look at Canavial by Alberto Carneiro (at the beginning of the exhibition), Biberstein's diptych (in the middle of the exhibition), and the work of Ana Santos (in the last room).
Audio description is an essential resource for the visually impaired to enjoy visual or plastic works. This practice consists of describing the work, leaving the remaining contemplation to the viewer.
