Russian Sign Language tours of Small Axe and taking part in Urs Fisher’s project YES for children and adults

Urs Fischer. Small Axe
12 June – 3 July 2016
Every Sunday, 14:00

DESCRIPTION

Visitors with families are invited to enjoy a Sunday tour of Urs Fisher’s exhibition Small Axe and take part in his project YES in Garage Square.

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art invites visitors with families on a Russian Sign Language tour of Urs Fisher’s exhibition Small Axe, organized to celebrate the first anniversary of Garage’s move to its permanent home in the building that once housed the Vremena Goda restaurant.

Occupying the Central Gallery, the installation includes more than 20 bronze hand-painted sculptures produced especially for the show. Small in scale, each captures a transient moment—from a wilted tulip in a vase to a rat playing a grand piano—populating the gallery with flights of fantasy in physical forms that provide an antidote to the austerity and grandeur of the Soviet Modernist architecture. 

Parallel to the tour, deaf, hearing and hard of hearing children are invited to take part in YES—Urs Fisher’s largest collaborative outdoor project. Each child is welcome to participate in the making of a landscape of clay sculptures that will metamorphose over the course of the show. With the help of a teacher and a moderator who speak Russian Sign Language, even our youngest visitors can take part in the project, while their parents can join them after the tour.

All tours are prepared by Garage's Inclusive Programs manager, Vlad Kolesnikov, in collaboration with Garage guides.
