Arnolfini - est 1961

Organised with our friends at Bristol Sight Loss Council and Sight Support, West of England, Arnolfini have two audio described tours for our Visually Impaired patrons to introduce Elias Sime: Eregata እርጋታ, the first major solo European museum exhibition of one of Ethiopia’s leading contemporary artists, Elias Sime. There are works ranging from large scale, wall mounted artworks made with electrical wires, type keys and circuit boards, stitched surfaces embellished with buttons, keys and bottlecaps, to installations made with mud and straw.

There will be sighted guides available and complimentary tea and coffee will be served in the café bar so people can have a chat about the work afterwards.

These tours will be held before the galleries open so that our Visitors Services team are able to lead Audio Descriptive tours without visitors being disturbed by the public. There will also be opportunities to touch samples of the work.

Free event. But please email to book a space.

Tour 1: Saturday 27 January 10am to 11am

Tour 2: Saturday 3 February 10am to 11am
