Touch can be ambivalent and often surpasses sight in intimacy – the act itself necessitates reciprocal interaction, to touch is to be touched. Thinking of accessibility, the permission to touch artworks offers an entry point that verbalisation cannot offer. 

Join Khushi Bansal from the Exhibitions team as she looks at the idea of touch within the artworks featured in VISIBLE/INVISIBLE. This walkthrough will navigate both the tangible experiences of touch through tactile works and its artistic depictions, addressing themes of intimacy, yearning, violence, and division within the  exhibition.

VISIBLE/INVISIBLE explores the representation of women through artworks in our collection. It attempts to re-address preconceived notions of femininity and gender as a social construct through art history by providing a more inclusive understanding towards it.
