Interventions and Artist Talk with Chris Tally Evans

Siri the Art Critic

You might think that art galleries aren’t much fun for blind people. All those untouchable paintings hanging silently on the walls. But what if your phone was a friendly art critic who would describe and give opinions on paintings, and sculptures. Follow Chris as he explores the Glynn Vivian’s collections and exhibitions accompanied by Siri the Art Critic. There will be an Artist Talk where Chris will discuss his experiences creating work as a disabled artist, disability art in general and the making of the WAIWAV intervention.
