Conversations with the Collection | A conversation piece (audio tour)

Welcome to this audio tour of the Conversations with the Collection display at the top level of Modern One.

For this tour, we have invited guests to share their thoughts on a selection of artworks from the display. Not knowing in advance which artworks they would be discussing, these responses are honest, real and unscripted. Through these informal interviews, we hope to open up our collection to different opinions and reactions.

To listen to this tour in the gallery make sure to bring your own mobile device and headphones. The audio guide can also be accessed via Soundcloud and Smartify.
