During the 1930s, Dora Maar’s photomontages became celebrated icons of surrealism.
Her eye for the unusual also translated to her commercial photography, including fashion and advertising, as well as to her social documentary projects. In Europe’s increasingly fraught political climate, Maar signed her name to numerous left-wing manifestos – a radical gesture for a woman at that time.
This exhibition will explore the breadth of Maar’s long career in the context of work by her contemporaries.
Moreover, Victoria Combalía has written the most complete biography of Dora Maar, called “Dora Maar: la femme invisible” and has contributed in the hole organisation of the Tate’s Modern Dora Maar’s exposition. This author is a well-known doctor of the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Professor of History of Art in the University of Barcelona. Furthermore, she was awarded this year with the Critic Award (GAC) in Catalonia.
