The works of art in Out of Sight! Art of the Senses feature elements that invite us not only to look but also to listen, smell, touch, and even taste. Here on the blog, we’re taking a closer look at some of the more unusual sensory experiences you can expect in the exhibition.
As visitors, one of the first rules we learn upon arriving at an art museum is that works of art must not be touched. In this exhibition, selected objects have been created by artists to be touched. For instance, you will need to part the strings of beads in Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s "Untitled" (Water) in order to enter the exhibition. Ronald Ventura’s Carousel is an incredible kinetic sculpture. You are invited to climb on and take photographs with the creatures—fantastical embodiments of characters from Philippine mythology—or watch it spin.
