Tate Modern – Dora Maar

Exhibition Dates: 20 November 2019 – 15 March 2020

During the 1930s, Dora Maar’s provocative photomontages became celebrated icons of surrealism. Her eye for the unusual also translated to her commercial photography, including fashion and advertising, as well as to her social documentary projects.

In Europe’s increasingly fraught political climate, Maar signed her name to numerous left-wing manifestos – a radical gesture for a woman at that time.

Her relationship with Pablo Picasso had a profound effect on both their careers. She documented the creation of his most political work, Guernica (1937). He immortalised her as Weeping Woman (1937). Together they made a series of portraits combining experimental photographic and printmaking techniques.

This exhibition will explore the breadth of Maar’s long career in the context of work by her contemporaries.
