Paintings and works of art for all senses. Touch and ear are stimulated in the sample for the blind shown in Guaymallén, Mendoza.
Blind people who want to approach art, especially visual, can only do so from the abstract conception they can form as a consequence of what someone tells them. But that may be different in the innovative art show offered in the Libertad Art Rooms. There, local artists present their works in an atypical and special exhibition, designed exclusively for the blind audience.
Until Thursday 17, the 6th Art Hall for the Blind takes place in the department of Guaymallén. The initiative brings together 47 works by Mendoza artists, which stimulate the visitor and offer a multisensory experience.
The exhibition also awarded awards to the most outstanding presentations and special mentions, by the jury composed of Patricia Barranco, from the Contemporary Art Space ; Ana María Toledo, plastic teacher specializing in disability; Estela Labiano, visual artist; José Luis Molina, professor at the Faculty of Arts and Design of UNCuyo ; Miguel Gandolfo, sculptor; Susana Peralta, non-visionary artist ; Gustavo Balvarrey, representative of the HCD of Guaymallén and María Gabriela Moreno, coordinator of the Liberty Art Rooms .
The winning works were that of Paula Blotta, with her work “Lo Sempiterno”, which proposes textile-velvet art, and that of Gisel Romina Manna, a mixed work called “El Resiro”.
“I worked the work differently than I think the rest of my works, looking for it to be purely sensitive, not contemplating colors and contrasts, but stimulating the person from touch,” said the artist Gisel Manna.
The visitor could do the exercise of perceiving the works forgetting the sense of sight : “I close my eyes and touch them, feel them, and try to decode what they generate me,” said Mariana, the exhibition attendant.
The exhibition has been transformed in recent years into an alternative for the development of art contemplating disability, as there is no other place in Mendoza and other cities in the country.
