Audio Described Curator’s Tour of An Arrangement for 5 Rooms
Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, Cnr Kitchener and Wellesley Streets, CBD, Auckland
Saturday 20 August 2022 10:30am – 12:00pm
Join us for an audio described tour for blind and low vision patrons through Yona Lee’s An Arrangement for 5 Rooms. Initially trained as a cellist, Lee’s installation maps narratives of life, music and movement. In this tour you will learn more about Lee’s practice while feeling the rhythmic undulations of An Arrangement for 5 Rooms – visitors can touch, sit and lie on the artwork.
Led by Natasha Conland, Curator Contemporary Art, this tour is audio described by Nicola Owen of Audio Described Aotearoa Ltd. It will last 90 minutes and is limited to 15 people.
Please book your place/s through the link below. If attending with a sighted companion please book tickets for them.

Alternative text for image: The patrons of an audio described tour at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki stand at the entrance to a Gallery space. Wearing white conservation gloves, attendees gently touch the wooden wall panels that surround them – this is an artwork called Te Taumata by the artist Lonnie Hutchinson. The artwork is based on kōwhaiwhai patterns and elements from nature to reflect an upward journey from the ground to the canopy of the building. The design is cut into a light American oak wood and envelopes the doorway to the exhibition.
