The Peggy Guggenheim Collection holds a special event, part of the museum’s accessibility and inclusion program designed for blind, partially sighted, and sighted visitors.
Double Meaning Master Class is a two-day event starting with a tactile exploration of seminal works of the avant-garde movements on view in the museum. Paul Klee’s theories on form and figuration introduce the theoretical research led by twentieth-century artists, aiding our understanding of their work and practices. The sculpture workshop that follows explores ideas of composition and disruption of pictorial subjects through the manipulation of geometric shapes and drawing in relief. The experience ends with the collective creation of a sculpture out of soft stone.
The tactile exploration is led by Valeria Bottalico, creator and organizer of the Double Meaning: Tactile Tours of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The sculpture workshop is organized and led by blind artist Felice Tagliaferri.
