​Start your day by uncovering the story of Dorothea Tanning’s seven-decade career: from her enigmatic early paintings, such as the self-portrait Birthday 1942, to her pioneering stuffed-textile sculptures. Enjoy quiet gallery hours and why not stay for a visit to the Members Room.​

The Members Bar on Level 5 of the Natalie Bell Building will be open from 9.00 during your Members Hours.
