Don’t touch the artwork!
How many times have you heard that at a museum or art gallery? Why is touching artwork not allowed? What other factors might affect the lifecycle of an artwork? Join us in a tactile investigation of art and art conservation to answer these questions through a series of kinesthetic explorations and activities.
Touch Lab, designed by artist and designer Anna-Karolina Szul, investigates how a variety of man-made and natural elements contribute to the wear and tear on works of art over time.
