Description

Led by Olivier Jamin, from a Deaf perspective, this exhibition tour will be carried out in British Sign Language. Using his skills and experience working in the art sector and being an artist himself, Olivier helps audiences gain insight into an exhibition.

This tour of artist Mohammad Barrangi’s exhibition ‘Playing in Wonderland’ in Gallery 1, explores his latest solo exhibition commissioned by Attenborough Arts Centre is a celebration of the aesthetic heritage of Iran and the artist’s childhood memories of playgrounds, fairs and folklore. Made in situ over three weeks at Attenborough Arts Centre as the current political protests in Iran took hold, the exhibition also became a site of reflection for Barrangi, who launched an Instagram callout to source images of women from all cultures from around the world in solidarity with the women of his home country.

The tour will focus on different pieces of artwork, and will be interpreted by a BSL interpreter into English.
