KUBES organizes an annual exhibition with which it offers affiliated artists the opportunity to present their work. The KUBES Artists collective has around 50 blind and partially sighted art practitioners.
On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the special anniversary exhibition took place this spring, about which you can read everything below. Preparations for the next KUBES Exhibition in 2019 are in full swing. We will keep you informed of this via this page, among other things.
KUBES Jubilee exhibition 2018
The KUBES Anniversary Exhibition in Slot Zeist (from 27 February to 27 May 2018) attracted more than 2000 visitors.
Under the title The art of seeing things differently, 34 artists affiliated with KUBES together presented more than 100 works in various disciplines. Many techniques in the flat surface and in spatial work were represented: photos, paintings, stained glass and digital paintings in addition to installations, sculptures and objects in wood, paper, stone or ceramics. Most of the work was also for sale and 9 works of art changed owners.
All not too fragile images and a number of (feel) paintings could of course be touched. In addition, KUBES gave volunteers and artists accessible tours. and information. As usual, the captions for the artworks were in large letters and Braille and for the first time also provided with a QR code. After scanning this code, users of a Smartphone received more information about the artist and the artwork. Information that was also available on the KUBES website. With special glasses on, good-looking visitors could experience how you experience an exhibition as a blind or partially sighted art lover.

Some reactions from visitors
'I visited the exhibition in Slot Zeist. What a pleasure to be able to view everything, to feel it. The latter was made possible in an extraordinary way by Lizzy, known to me as a guide during last year's cultural journey. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it! Dory Elie
'I was present at the opening of your anniversary exhibition yesterday and would like to let you know this way that I enjoyed the beautiful exhibition in Slot Zeist. Very nice to see how many people are so active at KUBES! And an exhibition with various works that were not only beautiful to see, but also very pleasant to touch (my favorite: The swimmer of Evert Bolt). I have been following KUBES for many years and I think you are doing a lot of good work to make art accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Congratulations again and many more years!
Sincerely, Irma Schwalbach director of the Blinden-Penning Foundation '
