"Art galleries and museums have long emphasized the visual, but we're offering something different: special multisensory art experiences to help you understand your surroundings in new ways! Come virtually explore the AGO Collection by activating your senses as you experience a selection of artworks through visual audio description, touch, smell and/or sound...
In this program, Parth Shah and Kyrie Robinson present an accessible, multisensory translation of Claes Oldenburg’s Ice Cream Soda with Cookie (1963). Oldenburg’s work is imbued with humour and this translation will try and capture the struggle between noticing something delicious, your mouth starting to water and the realization that you can not eat it because it is “art” (made out of inedible materials!) Take part in the humour of an ice cream sculpture portrayed through audio interviews and immersive sound experiences..."
