Andrew Yang leads you on a touch exploration of his first solo museum exhibition. An artist and trained biologist, Yang contemplates our relation to the Milky Way, to which the majority of people have no basic visual access. In this very special tour, Yang attempts to close this distance, allowing us to touch his work in ways that help us explore our shared elemental equivalencies—as inherent parts of the Milky Way. Our corporeal bodies are, in a very real sense, celestial bodies. This interactive public tour emphasizes multisensory engagement and verbal description for people who are blind or partially sighted and is open to all visitors.
