As Head of Displays, Chris Stephens has overseen the programming, planning and delivery of the collection displays at Tate Britain since 2001. Chris will discuss Moore’s work in the context of twentieth-century history. Situated in relation to the trauma of war, the advent of psychoanalysis, new ideas of sexuality, primitive art and Surrealism, this talk provides a fresh look at one of Britain’s best-loved artists.
Advance booking required. Talks last for approximately 45 minutes with a short time for questions. Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the evening talks. Wine and juice are available to purchase at evening talks.
