Seen - Unseen tour for blind or visually impaired people

Seen - Unseen is an art project by artist Clare McLaughlin. It deals with the non-visual exploration of art and allows blind or visually impaired people to experience art through touch.

Each visit will last 1 hour and will include a tactile exploration of two Vermeer paintings and a walk through the exhibition.

Clare’s thesis for her Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Art, explored the haptic, or sensory experience of art. In a predominately visual world, she began investigating how people with a visual impairment could access art and what could be done to highlight and improve their access.

“I enlisted the help and cooperation of NCBI . They were very helpful and gave me access to a lot of research material on organising an event for people with sight loss”.

The June Seen - Unseen gallery visit will take place on Thursday 22 June (5:30pm - 7:30pm) in the National Gallery of Ireland.

For more information, please contact Clare McLaughlin at or 086 309 1653.
