A new exhibition profiles the experiences of people living with visual impairment through art.

Windows of the Soul (15-23 October, The Lumen, Tavistock Place) includes Braille art, traditional paintings, print work, tactile art, icons, sound art as well as animations depicting visual hallucinations.

The exhibition, which is part of the Bloomsbury Festival in London, was developed by Dr Caroline Kilduff and Mr Siegfried Wagner.

Kilduff described being part of the team creating the exhibition as a “humbling experience.”

“It has been inspiring to hear everyone’s personal journeys with a resounding theme around how isolating visual impairment can be, and how comforting it is to meet others in the same position. We hope that this exhibition goes some way to achieving raising awareness and bringing people together while showcasing some amazing art,” she said.

A meet the artist symposium will take place between 6pm and 8pm on Friday 22 October.
