I am a medievalist in the process of completing a PhD (involving medieval medicine). I travel as much as possible at home (UK) and abroad. I'm always ready for new experiences!
Explore the unseen works of a significant modern artist
The Tate Modern is hosting the first international exhibition of the work of Brazilian artist Mira Schendel (1919–1988). The exhibition will feature over 250 paintings, drawings, and sculptures, including works which have never been displayed before.
An extremely prolific artist, Schendel worked in a variety of mediums, including crayon, oil, gold, gouache, and graphite, and produced paintings, drawings, sculpture, and installations. Schenedel doesn't belong to any one artistic movement of the twentieth century, but her works do contain aspects of conceptual art, minimalism, abstract art, lettrism, and other influences.
