The Tate Modern gallery, on the South Bank of the River Thames in London today announced the results of the first stage of its trial into making art available to the disabled.
“Often art needs to be viewed in lighting or from angles that not everyone can appreciate, “ explained Sir Marmaduke Billingsworth, a trustee of the gallery. “We set the artistic community the challenge of making pieces that were as meaningful for disabled visitors as for others.”
The first installation in the trial has been a spiral staircase for the disabled (pictured).
“The results have been marvellous, “ said Sir Marmaduke. “Although admittedly better coming down, than going up.”
