Image for Handful of Dust

Audio Description Tour at the Whitechapel Gallery

This free audio description tour with tactile images focuses on two exhibitions:  A Handful of Dust & ISelf: Self-Portrait as the Billy Goat.

A Handful of Dust  is a speculative history of the 20th century, tracing a visual journey through the imagery of dust from aerial reconnaissance, wartime destruction and natural disasters to urban decay, domestic dirt and forensics. Artists featured include Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray and Gerhard Richter, the exhibition has been conceived by writer and curator David Campany.

Self-Portrait as the Billy Goat brings together physical, psychological and imaginary self-portraits by a selection of leading international artists, such as Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin & Gilbert & George.

Focusing on key works, this tour will last approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, allowing time for an introduction in one of our education spaces followed by a tour of the exhibitions in Galleries 7, 8 & 9.
