Multisensory Moments: Kara Walker's Resurrection Story with Patrons

Art galleries and museums have long emphasized the visual, but we're offering something different: special multisensory art experiences to help you understand your surroundings in new ways! Come virtually explore the AGO Collection by activating your senses as you experience a selection of artworks through visual audio description, touch, smell and/or sound.

How can artists and designers create more multisensory experiences? OCADU Graduate Students, in response to an Inclusive Design Multisensory Museum Course, share their co-creative process of translating artworks in the AGO Collection into multisensory objects. Students explore a wide variety of techniques to create an inclusive gallery experience in a series of Multisensory Museum Moments.

In this program, Avery Creed, Kevin Ilango, Nidhi Paul and Sandra Law present an inclusive, multisensory translation of Kara Walker’s Resurrection Story with Patrons (2017). The experience consists of an interactive webpage where visitors can explore the stories, sounds and environment of enslaved Africans brought to America during the Antebellum period along with an audio-visual translation of the original artwork.
