See for Yourself with Carmen Papalia
Artist Carmen Papalia will begin with a short presentation and then along with Agnes Docents will guide visitors through the exhibition Leiden circa 1630: Rembrandt Emerges on a 20-minute “See for Yourself” non-visual tour. Designed for sighted, partially sighted or blind visitors, this community experience acknowledges the innate wisdom of all learners. Everyone is welcome to join us for this free, innovative and accessible program. A reception and sharing circle will follow.
Born in Vancouver, unceded Coast Salish territory, Carmen Papalia is a 2019 Sobey Award Long List nominee. He uses organizing strategies and improvisation to address access to public space, the art institution, and visual culture. Papalia’s walks, workshops, and interventions model new standards and practices of accessibility.
