Close Looking: Robert Houle Creative Audio Description

Close looking is an online discussion series that invites people to spend time with a single work from the AGO Collection - observing its details, discussing its creation, its history and the artist’s intention through multiple senses and perspectives. Connecting art, access and learning, it’s a series that clears a space for us to appreciate the role that artists play in revealing and even shaping the world in which we live. 

Join Art Educator, Charlotte Big Canoe, as she shares an audio description of an artwork, one of the techniques used during our Multisensory Program to help remove barriers to our collections. You will hear and learn about creative audio description, a type of spoken language describing visual images or objects, which enables audiences to engage and pursue their own journey in relation to visual art. We will explore Robert Houle’s The Pines, an AGO artwork that will be on view in the Robert Houle: Red is Beautiful Exhibition.

Automated captioning is available for all online programs. Please provide three weeks advance notice for requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for AGO programming. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please contact us to make a request for these accommodations. Learn more about accessibility at the AGO.
