Tate Modern with an artist
Gain unique insights into the Tate Modern with an artist-curator
After studying Law and Art History, I have worked for galleries, managed artists, curated shows but essentially I am a writer and an artist. I love spreading my love for Art.
One of my favourite museum is the Tate Modern - I've spent years there and personally know some exhibiting artists. I'll give you a unique insight into the wonders of this converted power station that has become one of the world's most renowned and popular museum of modern and contemporary art.
We'll explore the Tate Modern's highlights, and examine the work of giants such as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali, as well as discover the fascinating and varied contemporary art landscape. Last but not least, we'll finish the experience in the new enigmatic pyramid extension that opened in June 2016.
The art world can sometimes seem inaccessible unless you explore it with an artist.
Took the 2 hour tour on Sat 21 Aug with Daphne. Time just flew by and it was an exceptional insight, to the techniques, culture and history of the whole street art scene in London. It was great just walking around the museum and getting a real "off the beaten tracks" experience of the art.
One of the best tours I've ever been on! I did the Tate Modern tour that was insanely interesting! Daphne was indescribably capable and passionate about art. She knows it all! Definitely not to miss. You will see a part of London that people -particularly tourists - know nothing about.
I didn't know that I was this ignorant about tate modern before joining Daphné for this experience. She was amazing - she personally knew most of the artists and that added another layer to the heaps of information she gave us.
Daphne was passionate and well informed (knowing many of the street artists herself). She describes the skills and techniques of the artists, helping us to understand the amazing talent of many of these street artists. I've lived in London for more than two years now and this is one of the best things I've ever done in London. If visiting London, it will give you a different taste of the city.
This was the second tour that we have been on with Fromigo and with the lovely Daphne! As a College Art tutor we are always looking for things to inspire and motivate our students and this is an absolute must! Daphne is so knowledgeable and her passion for art is amazing. She really enthused all the students and they comment how this was the highlight of our three day trip (despite the rain!!). I would definitely book again!
