BSL Tour

Lee Krasner: Living Colour

On sale information
Lee Krasner 'Desert Moon'

A British Sign Language tour of the exhibition Lee Krasner: Living Colour, exclusively for Deaf and hard of hearing visitors.

This tour will be led by John Wilson who highlights key artworks in the exhibition using BSL. The tour will be interpreted for non-BSL users by Anna Kitson.

The exhibition celebrates the work and life of Lee Krasner (1908–1984), a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism. The first major presentation of her work in Europe for more than 50 years, Lee Krasner: Living Colour tells the story of a formidable artist, whose importance has too often been eclipsed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock.

Discover Krasner’s spirit for invention – from striking early self-portraits to her acclaimed ‘Little Image’ paintings from the 1940s, from collages comprised of torn-up earlier work to a selection of her most impressive large-scale abstract paintings.

Explore nearly 100 works, many of which are being presented for the first time in the UK.

No specialist knowledge is required. This friendly and informal tour will last approximately an hour and a half with time for questions and answers.
