3 SPACE - Re:THINK ART


#3SpaceRethink Festival 

1st - 3rd May 2013
12.00 - 9.00pm
FREE EVENT
With a FREE ticket you will have the chance to explore the 3Space Blackfriars hub and get involved in...

Scratchadelia have curated their newest ‘blind’ art exhibition exclusively for Re:THINK Blackfriar, inviting visitors to rethink how they connect with spaces and art as a sensory experience.
Creating haptic murals under the masthead of Scratchadelia, Kassim Bay and Dino De La Vega have been recycling abandoned spaces into a new kind of art museum where you are allowed to touch, making the art world accessible to people with sight loss.
During the 3 day exhibition, spect-Actors will be invited to a sensory fête where they will be able to re:experience some tactile re:production of the most iconic artworks and to re:USE their forgotten senses to re:IMAGINE the ways of seeing and re:THINK our environment. 

Alice Vaughan: "Scratchadelia will run a very interesting exhibition – they use braille and relief to create artwork for people with visual impairments, making use of forgotten space within the building which you would never think could be used for an art exhibition."

But that's not all...
Check out the programme of WORKSHOPS AND MASTERCLASSES, TALKS AND DISCUSSIONS, PANELS AND PARTIES also running as part of Re:THINK.
FREE EVENT - Make sure you BOOK to guarantee a place.
