During these adapted tours of Takashi Murakami’s exhibition, visitors with developmental and learning disabilities will learn about the artist’s works from the past thirty years.
Under the Radiation Falls consists of five chapters or sections exploring various aspects of Japanese culture and their influence on Takashi Murakami’s work.
The exhibition features over eighty works by the artist, including paintings, drawings, prints, and feature and animated films from public and private collections, as well as traditional Japanese engravings and paintings from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, manga, anime, and various artefacts from Murakami's studio.
During the tour, an Inclusive Department tutor will accompany groups of visitors with developmental and learning disabilities for extra support. Additional visual materials will be provided to help visitors better remember the exhibition.
Visitors can use a social story available on the Museum’s website and at the information desk to prepare for the tour.
Noise-cancelling headphones are also available for the duration of the visit and can be found at the information desk.
The tour will be followed by a workshop, where visitors can make their own works based on what they have seen at the exhibition.
