Marlene Dumas: The Image as Burden

The Tate Modern presents a major retrospective charting the career of the celebrated Cape Town artist Marlene Dumas who has been based in Amsterdam since 1976.

Promoted as the most significant exhibition of her work ever held in Europe, the London show spans from the artist's early works through seminal paintings to new works on paper.

Today Dumas works mainly with oil on canvas and ink on paper but in the past has used a range of media. Recurring subjects in her work include the physical reality of the human body and its psychological value, and the extreme fringes of life's cycle, from birth to death.

Over the years her work has also featured recognisable faces such as Naomi Campbell, Princess Diana, Amy Winehouse, and Osama bin Laden.

Sun-Thurs 10.00-18.00. Fri-Sat 10.00-22.00
