​​​For Members with the London Private View Pass only​

Uncover 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.

The evening Private Views are the perfect time to see the exhibition outside of gallery hours and are a great social occasion for an evening with friends.

Go for drinks and a bite to eat in the Members Bar of the Natalie Bell Building, or stay for dinner at the Level 6 Kitchen and Bar. First sitting 19.00, last sitting 21.00. Book your table for dinner by emailing Kitchen.Bar@tate.org.uk or calling +44 (0)207 401 5103.
