Join us for an after-hours tour of the Dora Maar exhibition

Led by curator of the exhibition Emma Lewis, this tour explores Dora Maar’s photography in the social, political and artistic climate of 1930s Paris.

We will examine Maar’s return to painting and the development of her style and technique. We will also shed light on the curatorial thinking behind presenting the work that she made in collaboration with Picasso.

Please note that the tour led by Emma Lewis will be followed by an independent Private view of the exhibition.


Emma Lewis is Assistant Curator, Tate Modern. She has curated or co-curated the exhibitions Dora Maar, Olafur Eliasson: In real life, Modigliani and Wolfgang Tillmans: 2017. Emma has written monographs for many artists and is the author of Isms: Understanding Photography (Bloomsbury/Rizzoli 2017).
