Audio Description: Going wild and dirty with feeling

Audio-described tour Museums, galleries and heritage venues

Join this audio description tour and discover more about the display The Disappearing Figure: Art after Catastrophe

One of the fundamental questions for artists in the middle of the twentieth century was how to continue making art after the catastrophic events of the Second World War. In this audio description tour we will explore how artists find materials and methods of communication to match urgent expression and raw feelings.

Richard Thomas is an artist who studied at Leeds University in the 1970s. He enjoys setting up collaborative art workshops has been involved with learning activities at the Tate Galleries in London for over 25 years.

No booking required.  This tour takes place seated in the gallery. Sighted companions and guide dogs are welcome. Hearing loops and amplifiers are available.  Please join us in the Community Room (in the Blavatnik building, next to Terrace Café) for tea and coffee from 15.30 before the tour.
