Last Seen – An Art Exhibition to Save Sight

13 Nov, 2019

Queensland Eye Institute Foundation (QEIF) is hosting two events at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) on Wednesday, 13 November 2019 to launch the Last Seen Exhibition.

Like many things in life that are just expected, eyesight is one of those things we take for granted. But can you imagine how much you would value the last thing you saw, if you started to lose your sight? Last Seen is the culmination of the pairing of nine influential artists with visually-impaired people to depict their last, most poignant memory before their sight started to deteriorate.
