Delhi gets ready for art spaces where the visually impaired feel welcome

The National Museum’s ongoing exhibition, titled India and the World: A History in Nine Stories, is a first-of-its-kind attempt to lend inclusivity to the world of art appreciation.

The National Museum’s ongoing exhibition, titled India and the World: A History in Nine Stories, is a first-of-its-kind attempt to lend inclusivity to the world of art appreciation.The detailed exhibition has over 200 objects on display — some of the most foremost works of art from around 20 museums and private collections across the world, including the British Museum, London. And 18 highlights from these are tactile recreations. Alongside there are text descriptions in Braille and even a special audio guide, not to mention a tactile path laid down to make it easy for the visually-impaired to manoeuvre independently. “When I had started working to make museums more accessible to the disabled, and approached people, they often commented ‘Jo dekh nahin sakte wo museum aake kya karenge’ (One who can’t see has nothing to do in a museum),” recalls Siddhanth Shah, who has worked to make the ongoing exhibition at National Museum inclusive for the blind. Shah has also worked as a design consultant with UNESCO to make World Heritags Sites in India, disabled-friendly.

When Gauguin and Van Gogh lived together, they often talked about painting in the tropics. Van Gogh dreamt of travelling to the tropics, but thought he was too old to make the trip. Gauguin ultimately travelled to Tahiti in 1891, where he painted this work.
