Fahrelnissa Zeid @ Tate Modern / until Sunday 8th October 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors:

@ Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

Trained in both Paris and Istanbul, Fahrelnissa Zeid was an important figure in the Turkish avant-garde d Group in the early 1940s and the École de Paris (School of Paris) in the 1950s. Her vibrant abstract paintings are a synthesis of Islamic, Byzantine, Arab and Persian influences fused with European approaches to abstraction. Many of her abstract works are monumental and demand attention.

Zeid’s reputation as an artist was cemented in the 1950s when she was living between London and Paris and exhibiting extensively internationally. The artist also began experimenting with painting on turkey and chicken bones, which she later cast in polyester resin panels evocative of stained-glass windows. In the later years of her life she unexpectedly returned to figurative painting, creating stylised portraits of her friends and family.

Indulge in Zeid’s obsession with line and dazzling colour in this exhibition. Rediscover one of the greatest female artists of the 20th century in this first major retrospective.​

Les Enfants Terribles bring their multiple award-winning show, The Terrible Infants to the magical surroundings of Wiltons Music Hall for the first time.

Based upon a series of twisted tales, this fantastic spectacle blends puppetry, live music and story-telling into a highly sensory theatrical feast suitable for big kids and small grown-ups! Featuring narration from Dame Judi Dench.

Meet Tumb, the boy who eats his mum, Thingummyboy, with a face even his mother forgets, Little Linena, the material girl and of course little Tilly and her terrible tail. Roald Dahl meets Tim Burton in this hugely theatrical, funny, sad, silly, junk-filled, puppetry packed, dark, delicious, magical piece of performance.

This unforgettable 10th anniversary production follows the huge success of The Trench, The Vaudevillains and the Olivier Award-nominated Alice’s Adventures Underground.

In 1993, in front of the world’s press, the leaders of Israel and Palestine shook hands on the lawn of the White House. Few watching would have guessed that the negotiations leading up to this iconic moment started secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.

Oslo tells the true story of two maverick Norwegian diplomats who coordinated top secret talks and inspired seemingly impossible friendships. Their quiet heroics led to the groundbreaking Oslo Peace Accords.
