HOSTED BY

Discover the artist who pushed the boundaries of surrealism

This is the first large-scale exhibition of Dorothea Tanning’s work for 25 years. It brings together 100 works from her seven-decade career – from enigmatic paintings to uncanny sculptures.

What to expect?

Tanning wanted to depict ‘unknown but knowable states’: to suggest there was more to life than meets the eye. She first encountered surrealism in New York in the 1930s. In the 1940s, her powerful self-portrait Birthday 1942 attracted the attention of fellow artist Max Ernst – they married in 1946. Her work from this time combines the familiar with the strange, exploring desire and sexuality.

From the 1950s, now working in Paris, Tanning’s paintings became more abstract, and in the 1960s she started making pioneering sculptures out of fabric. A highlight of the exhibition is the room-sized installation Chambre 202, Hotel du Pavot 1970-3. This sensual and eerie work features bodies growing out the walls of an imaginary hotel room. In later life, Tanning dedicated more of her time to writing. Her last collection of poems, Coming to That, was published at the age of 101.

Organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid in collaboration with Tate Modern

How to Avoid Burnout with Dr. Emily Nagoski and Dr. Amelia Nagoski

How to Avoid Burnout with Dr. Emily Nagoski and Dr. Amelia Nagoski

  • 12 Little Titchfield Street London, England United Kingdom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
Burn-out-13-2400x1350-768x432.jpg

HOSTED BY How to Academy

Science tells us that women experience burnout differently than men. This ground-breaking talk provides a plan to help women minimise stress, manage emotions and live a more joyful life.

This compassionate, practical and optimistic talk will provide you with the science, inspiration and practical solutions to thrive in a stressed-out, unpredictable and anxious-ridden world.

What to expect?

You’ll learn:

• How to actually deal with stress and not just the things that cause you stress, e.g. work, money, family. How to separate it and solve it by completing the stress cycle

• How to overcome emotional exhaustion at home and in the workplace – setting boundaries without the guilt, avoid feeling swallowed up by work or suffocated by commitments

• Why sometimes struggling and things ‘going wrong’ increases learning and creativity

• How listening to your ‘inner critic’ and acknowledging limitations helps diminish them

• Why physical activity, affection and human connection are the key tools to combating stress

• Why a lot of advice on stress is unhelpful to women – the majority of research on stress is based on male participants even though women actually respond very differently to stress

• Why different social pressures and expectations on women add to their overall stress burden and why engaging with your ‘something larger’ will help combat them

• Understanding that it is normal – nearly universal – to want to accept and love your body as it is whilst also wanting to change it to conform to the culturally constructed aspirational ideal


Date:  WED, MARCH 20, 2019, 6:45 PM – 8:00 PM GMT
