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

Join us for an audio-described tour of From Life, our exhibition exploring past, present and future approaches to making art from life. Starting with historic works from the RA Collection that transport the viewer to the very foundation of the Royal Academy in the 18th century, From Life traces the practice of working from life right through to the present day. Alongside a room devoted to Jeremy Deller’s Iggy Pop Life Class, we will explore contemporary work in diverse media by various artists including numerous Royal Academicians who continue to interrogate the practice of working from life, among them Jenny Saville, Chantal Joffe and Gillian Wearing. The following handling session will review the myriad of materials and techniques artists have used in their efforts to draw from life.

This event includes refreshments and volunteer support is provided.
