Michelle Vine: Soft touch

Enter a world of furry forests, cosy bathtubs and embraceable artworks. Over summer, Michelle Vine will transform the gallery into an immersive exhibition where play and touch are highly encouraged.

Michelle Vine is a contemporary installation artist whose practice centres on creating accessible and inclusive artworks that utilise human touch. 

Soft touch is designed to be accessible to local community members with disabilities or access requirements and their family and friends. Artworks in the exhibition are audio described and AUSLAN interpreted.

For people using a cane, when navigating through the space, tactile floor tape indicates the location of artworks, which you can reach out and touch or experience with your whole body.  A cane detectable indicator will alert you to the QR code directly above, scan this to listen to the audio descriptions on your own device.  

If you would like a group tour that has specific needs to support your attendance or would like to know further information about the gallery or exhibition, please contact us via email Caboolture.Gallery@moretonbay.qld.gov.au, phone on 07 5433 2800 or in person at 4 Hasking St, Caboolture QLD 4500.

Artworks in the exhibition are audio described and AUSLAN interpreted.

Please note: To the right of Soft touch in the gallery is another exhibition called JamFactory Icon Tom Moore: Abundant Wonder. Tom Moore is Australia’s leading glass artist and his exhibition is a fantastical display of imaginative and playful glass sculptures and environments.

*At Caboolture Regional Art Gallery, the well-being of the community is our highest priority. The Soft Touch exhibition is regularly cleaned throughout the day and we require all visitors to use the hand sanitizer stations before engaging with each artwork for hygiene safety.

Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
