PRESS RELEASE :

TOUCH ART FAIR 2013 : PLEASE DO TOUCH

: 17-20 October 2013

braille

We are thrilled to invite you to the Touch Art Fair 2013 : the world’s first-ever art fair celebrating tactile art.

In a society where everything is at your fingertips but you are still not allowed to touch, spect-actors are invited to participate in a sensory fête. They will be encouraged to re:activate their forgotten senses and to experience art in a more intimate way.

The Touch Art Fair challenges conventions and makes art accessible to people with sight loss through touch.

It will take over a former BBC building in London on 35 Marylebone High Street, W1U 4QA, just a short walk from the Frieze Art Fair.

It is open to the public from 17-20 October 2013 and features work from international artists including: Jake and Dinos Chapman, Abigail Burt, Axelle Russo, Gillian A Mcfarland, Loz Simpson, Nicole Wassall, Phoebe Stannard, Scratchadelia, Steve Chang Hee Lee, Sungshin Olivia Yim, Victoria Karlsson and Younghee Lee.


Further artists, exhibitors and special events will be announced shortly...

Notes to editors:

Press preview will be held on Wednesday 16th October 2013. Please email contact@touchartfair.com to confirm your interest in attending.
