Event celebrating Matisse to be broadcast live from Tate Modern to Basingstoke's ODEON
7:00am Saturday 24th May 2014 in Leisure News
FOR the first time ever, Tate will broadcast live into cinemas around the UK with an exclusive tour of the Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs exhibition at Tate Modern.
At this one-off event, which will be broadcast in Basingstoke's Odeon on June 3, audiences are invited to enjoy an intimate, behind the scenes tour of this blockbuster exhibition with Tate Director Nicholas Serota and broadcaster Francine Stock.
It will feature interviews with experts, friends of the artist and rare archive footage of Matisse at work.
A giant of modern art, this landmark show explores the final chapter in Matisse's career as he began 'carving into colour' and his series of spectacular cut-outs was born.
From snow flowers to dancers, circus scenes and a famous snail, this unique exhibition brings together a dazzling array of 120 Matisse pieces from around the world. Bold, lively and often large scale, the cut-outs are a joyous celebration of colour and shape.
