Join us for an audio described tour of ‘Léon Spilliaert’ for blind and partially sighted visitors.

Visitors have a one-hour audio described tour followed by an object handling session, discussion and refreshments. The handling session invites visitors to explore objects and materials inspired by Léon Spilliaert. This event is led by experienced audio describer Harry Baxter. Refreshments are included and volunteer support is provided.

Léon Spilliaert is the first monographic exhibition of the Belgian artist’s work in the UK. The self-taught artist’s haunting portraits and nightscapes are shaped by the affinity he felt with writers and thinkers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Friedrich Nietzsche. This exhibition brings together works from public and private collections across Belgium, France and the USA, presenting a journey through the lifetime of a remarkably insightful and unusual artist.
