Leonora Carrington, Tate Liverpool, 6 March – 31 May 2015.
Exhibition put on as part of the 2015 Year of Mexico in Britain celebrations. Tate Liverpool has organised the first monographic exhibition in the UK devoted solely to the Lancashire-born but Mexican-based surrealist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011). A selection of key paintings made throughout her career explore how she devised her own distinctive take on surrealism whilst working alongside other artists such as Salvador Dalí. Also displayed alongside her paintings are examples of her poetry, sculpture, textiles and tapestries as well as designs for film and theatrical performances that she created after she had settled in Mexico in 1941. The exhibition is not, however, accompanied by a catalogue though there is a planned Study Day scheduled for Saturday 23 May, 10.30-16.30.
