How does sight, or a lack of it, affect and transform people’s lives? Newly commissioned film, installation, painting, text, audio and photography by an impressive line-up of sighted, partially sighted and non-sighted artists explores the different ways in which we 'see'.


Artists and writers including Mark Haddon, eL Seed, Bahia Shehab, Karen McCarthy Woolf, Zoe Partington, Sarah Sandman, Tanvir Bush, Georges Senga, Sally Booth, Mandy Redvers-Rowe, Sammy Baloji, and Rachel Gadsden examine the concept of vision.

A key part of the exhibition is Imaginary Visions, a series of eight written visual artworks which evoke conceptual, poetic and emotional experiences. The artworks do not exist outside of the author’s and reader’s imaginations - they can never truly be ‘seen’.

This is the first major exhibition from Project Light, a global art campaign led by Peek Vision and Fine Acts, which champions the right to sight in a world where 36 million people are blind, three quarters from preventable or curable conditions.

Supported by Rolex and Arts Council England. Late night opening on Thursday, 4 October (until 9pm).

Fully accessible with audio, large print and braille description.
