The Dora Maar exhibition at Tate Modern was amazing. It was the first time her work had been exhibited in the UK. If you missed it, or would like another opportunity to see it again join artist and tutor Nick Pearson on a virtual tour of the popular exhibition.

Wednesday 31 March

10.30am

Dora Maar was a leading fashion, advertising and social documentary photographer. She was also one of the greatest Surrealist photographers in Paris in the 20th century. She worked during an important part of the modern period and covered photography, painting, poetry and philosophy. Dora Maar and Pablo Picasso were linked for eight years. Their relationship had a profound effect on both their careers. She photographed his creative process and he used her as his muse.

Join the virtual tour of the Dora Maar exhibition via Zoom. If you have not used Zoom before, Nick can show you how to download and use the program.

Nick runs the tour from his studio and uses the wall as his projector screen. You’ll be able to see the images but if you want to see them clearly, please use the handout with high resolution images. Nick sends you the handout when you have booked your place. After the tour Nick sends you his lecture notes.

The price for the two-hour virtual tour and notes is £20 per person. If two of you join the tour and share a computer screen, the price is £30 for you both. You can pay Nick via bank transfer or cheque. He will send you the details.
