Can art be accessible to all? Can you imagine an exhibition where it's stated next to the artworks that touching them is allowed?

That is what the Art Beyond the Visible exhibition aims to achieve. It's divided into two worlds. The first is the world that exists, presenting existing adaptations for people with visual impairments. It showcases examples of best practices from previous efforts of participating institutions and organizations. The space will also feature examples from Ancona and Bologna, home to two of Italy's leading museums for the blind and partially sighted: the Museo Omero and the Museo Anteros.

The second part of the exhibition – the world in the making – is our unique contribution to national and international efforts. It's an experiment based on a dialogue between artists and users. Through group and individual encounters, we have brought the world of blindness and visual impairment closer to artists from three countries, aiming to expand their understanding and inspire adaptations in their own work. These adaptations will result in new artworks currently in progress.

From the project's conception, we also decided to create an exhibition video to explain our experiment to all visitors. We have partnered with the School of Arts at the University of Nova Gorica for this purpose.

We do not intend to present the exhibition as art exclusively for the blind and visually impaired, but rather as art for everyone, allowing all to experience contemporary art in a new way.
