The 9th Touch Art Festival: Wandering into Touch Phase II Exhibition ''Running Errands''

Date: 2023-09-15 - 2023-10-15

Visual art is a subject we have been learning since childhood, and it is a natural starting point for understanding art. It seems that we must first have visual perception in order to appreciate what art is. However, our perception of the world is not solely governed by sight.
 
From September to October 2023, CCCD will organize the 9th Touch Art Festival - Wandering in Touch Stage 2 Exhibition: "Running Errands". Building upon the previous exhibition led by six visually impaired artists titled "Hanging Around", "Running Errands" will feature the participation of four sighted artists. Together, they will guide you into an artistic realm that goes beyond visual perception, allowing you to experience the power of art in different ways. You are welcome to listen to the works with your ears, touch the textures with your hands, walk into different spaces with your feet, and experience the exhibition with all parts of your body. We look forward to exploring, experiencing, and creating together with you, embarking on a multisensory journey!

/About Touch Art Festival/
CCCD started the first Hong Kong Touch Art Festival in 2013. The festival welcomes the public to extend other senses in creating and appreciating art while crossing the mainstream art form based on visuals. Touch Art provides an opportunity for visually impaired people to appreciate art. At the same time, providing a platform for the public to know about the experiences of people with visual impairment.
