Have paintings brought to life through this fully accessible audio described tour for blind and partially sighted visitors

Artists have long harnessed the depiction of light to create theatrical atmospheres or symbolise enlightenment. Used as both subject and medium we will explore the many different ways artists play with light. Found in the Tate collection from historical paintings to the contemporary light installations this tour will explore the use of light in art.

Led by Anna Murray, the talk takes place seated in the gallery. Sighted companions and guide dogs are welcome. Hearing loops and amplifiers for those needing some extra support in the galleries are available.

No booking required. Please join us in the Manton Studio for tea and coffee from 10.30 before the tour.
