At this event for blind and visually impaired visitors, artist educators will lead an audio-described tour of ‘Intrigue: James Ensor by Luc Tuymans’, followed by refreshments and a handling session.

The theatrical, the satirical and the macabre come together in arresting fashion in the art of James Ensor. Curated by fellow Belgian artist Luc Tuymans, this exhibition presents a truly original body of work, seen through the eyes of one of today’s leading painters.

Join us for this audio-described tour and handling session to learn more about this innovative outsider, who rebelled against the conservative art teachings of the late 19th-century academy in Brussels by creating gloriously surreal creations that inspired and influenced the development of Expressionism.

This event includes refreshments, and volunteer support is provided.
