Join Mal Journal for Sex Negative, an evening of readings and a discussion programmed for the upcoming edition of Uniqlo Tate Lates at Tate Modern.
As part of the evening's Art Chats segment, Mal contributing writers and poets Bhanu Kapil, Sasha Dugdale and Daisy Lafarge will explore sabotage as artistic practice and pain as conveyed in the work of Dora Maar, currently on show at the Tate Modern.
One of surrealism's icons, Dora Maar's provocative photography, photomontages, and social documentary projects are gathered for the first time in a large scale retrospective at Tate Modern. Maar's relationship with Pablo Picasso, immortalised by his portraits of her, including Weeping Woman 1937, has had a profound effect on their careers and legacy. Much more than being a muse, Maar documented his creation of Guernica 1937, and together they made a series of collaborative portraits.
