Croatian ‘Art for the Blind’ Project to Open in UK Parliament

CroatiaA unique project bringing art work closer to blind people titled ‘Multisensor exhibition for the blind and visually impaired’ by Croatian art historian and critic Nataša Jovičić, is set to open next week in London at the home of the UK Parliament…

Jovičić’s tactile gallery, exhibiting sculptures and reliefs of various pieces of art, is the result of 10 years of research. Jovičić has developed a new concept in which the work of art is transferred to tactile diagrams, with each colour in the picture associated with a specific texture and shown in a separate diagram. Audio navigation in the form of expert analysis of each piece of art also accompanies the visitor.

Jovičić has already exhibited her project in various leading galleries and museums, such as Tate Modern in London, Guggenheim in the USA, and Georges Pompidou centre in Paris. Jovičić’s Palace of Westminster exhibition starts on 9 December, with Croatia’s Minister of Culture Andrea Zlatar Violić set to attend the opening.
