Tour, Workshop

Gesture is an intimate encounter through the exhibition where no spoken words will be exchanged and you will be guided by body language only. It is a unique offering to reflect upon the many ways we communicate with each other beyond words, through the body.

Gesture will begin in the exhibition space and culminate in an active hands-on experience in The Waterhouse at The Cutaway.

Enter into Gesture with an open mind and graciously welcome a different type of artistic encounter.

Suitable for all ages.
