About the exhibition

An exhibition summarising the “Accessible Gallery” project implemented from May 2021.

The prepared materials will allow for the free and independent reception of the exhibition by every person, regardless of age or level of ability.

Where: Galeria Labirynt, ul. Popiełuszki 5 Lublin

The exhibition is located on the ground floor. A 13degree ramp leads to the exhibition hall through a 138 cm wide double-leaf door. The door opens outwards. Usually only the left door leaf is open. The works are accompanied by descriptions in Polish, English and in the Polish sign language.

Thirty works from the collection of Galeria Labirynt in Lublin have been designed to be accessible for people with disabilities. The exhibition presents nine of them – photographs, sculptures, objects, as well as paintings made by Polish and foreign artists. The works were selected in consultation with people with disabilities.

The exhibition has been prepared in line with universal design, i.e., one that will allow free access to it for every person. Therefore, the presented works of art from the collection of Galeria Labirynt have been enriched with adaptations that will allow you to get acquainted with them, inter alia, by means of touch, audiodescription or translation into the Polish sign language.

Each work is accompanied by haptic adaptations – tactile diagrams or models. All tactile materials are original, experimental projects made, among others, by students of the Institute of Fine Arts at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University under the supervision of Ewa Niestorowicz, PhD. The signatures of the works were prepared in the Braille alphabet. At the exhibition, you can also listen to audiodescriptions, i.e., descriptions of what each work of art presents. The audiodescriptions are prepared in the audio form – we encourage you to listen to them on headphones. The audiodescriptional materials were developed by students of the English Philology of the Catholic University of Lublin under the supervision of Anna Sadowska, PhD.
