Exhibition ~ ‘Re-framing Disability: Portraits from the Royal College of Physicians’ (UK)

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in the UK, is hosting an exhibition exploring historical portraits of disabled people. The exhibition will run from 14th February – 8th July 2011, and includes the voices of 27 disabled participants from across the UK, who came together to discuss the historical portraits and their own identities and lives. 

There are many accessible features to the exhibition itself including a film, audio description and audio points, and also the chance to visit the exhibition during one of our late night or Saturday openings.

The exhibition will tour to further venues throughout 2011–12.  (For example, between 28 July and 29 September 2011 the exhibition will be held at Shape, the disability-led arts organisation, in Kentish Town, London.)
