Unique five sense visitor experience at National Portrait Gallery

reanimate

For one night only the National Portrait Gallery will become the first museum to offer a total sensory visitor experience where people can listen to sonic landscapes and DJ sets, see exhibitions and films, taste cocktails and even be intoxicated by a specially created perfume. The event is set to be one of the most far-reaching explorations of the power of the senses.

We have loaned speakers for the event and sound artists such as Mira Calix and Martyn Ware have composed specially commissioned soundscapes inspired by the collection.

ReANIMATE will take place at the National Portrait Gallery on Friday 5th August 2011, 18.00 – 21.50
