New work, new partnetships
I’m extremely happy to announce that our Landscapes of the Body project will be expanding over the coming year. We are partnering with The Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Art (@Warholfdn) and Redline Contemporary Art Center of Denver (RedLineDenver) to expand the work with a focus on accessibility for blind and low vision viewers. We will be adding tactile versions of each print to be exhibited, alongside the traditional framed prints and full audio descriptions. I plan to document our journey here, so check back to read about our progress on the expansion and announcements for upcoming exhibitions. A heartfelt thank you goes out to The Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Art, and Redline Contemporary Art Center of Denver for their belief in this work, and the importance of accessibility in visual art for those who cannot see.
Celebrating diversity in gender, age, body type and physical ability, this work focuses on beauty in every body through abstraction, while remaining non-explicit and suitable for all audiences. Accessibility for visual art is often an afterthought, but this project has had accessibility in mind since its creation in 2013 and has served as a template for accessibility in visual arts for fully sighted artists.
This year, Landscapes of the Body celebrates its tenth anniversary, originally created in 2013. The tactile prints currently exhibited with the collection are limited in number due to the cost associated with the embossing and layering process the prints require. In the coming year, we will be moving to 3d printed renditions of the photos using lithography. We will also be creating new images for the collection to take advantage of the new direction in the tactile prints.
Landscapes of the Body is finishing a three-year engagement exhibition and will begin showing again in mid-2024. Spreading the word about accessibility in visual art is important to us, so if you would like to discuss an exhibition date for this collection please drop Ted a message at email@example.com
