Art For All
Photographs to Touch
Convinced that access to art is a fundamental right, the Musée de l’Élysée has created an innovative project aimed at making photography accessible to blind audiences. Around thirty important works from the Museum’s collections have been transcribed into tactile images and posted online, making them accessible to blind audiences worldwide.
Cartography of an exhibition
Accessible online the reGeneration_web platform proposes an interactive map of the exhibition for the purpose of spotlighting the community that has grown up around the project over the last 15 years. By playing around with the filters, the viewer can draw the links between photographers, institutions and schools. The platform also provides access to the artist’s biographies.
