This event for blind and partially sighted visitors starts with an audio-described tour of the exhibition, followed by refreshments and a handling session.

Jasper Johns is regarded as one of the most important artists of the 20th century, and has remained central to American contemporary art since his arrival in New York in the 1950s.

Join us for this audio-described tour to experience the vast range of paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings in this exhibition detailing the different chapters of Johns’ career. Afterwards, our handling session will explore Johns’s appropriation of objects and symbols and his treatment of iconographic material.

This event includes refreshments and volunteer support is provided.
