Dóra Maurer

24 July 2020

While some museums remain shuttered due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are now reopening as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.

Dóra Maurer came to prominence in the 1960s as part of the Hungarian neo-avant-garde, producing conceptual works that drew on her training as a graphic artist and printmaker. Maurer’s later career has seen her experiment with film, video, and three-dimensional painting to continue her explorations of form and seriality. This first major UK survey, which reopens along with the Tate Modern on 27 July and continues until 24 January 2021, includes recent large-scale acrylics that have never been shown in Britain before now. Find out more from the Tate’s website.
