BSL Tour: Sonia Delaunay

Join us for a BSL tour of the Tate Modern exhibition of Sonia Delaunay (1885–1979). She was a key figure in the Parisian avant-garde and became the European doyenne of abstract art

Throughout the first half of the twentieth century, she celebrated the modern world of movement, technology and urban life, exploring new ideas about colour theory together with her husband Robert Delaunay.

This is the first UK retrospective to assess the breadth of her vibrant artistic practice across a wide range of media. It features the groundbreaking paintings, textiles and clothes she made across a sixty-year career, as well as the results of her innovative collaborations with poets, choreographers and manufacturers, from Diaghilev to Liberty.

This tour will be delivered by Richard Thomas with BSL interpretation.
