Hilma af Klint: The Secret Paintings Curator’s Tour

11am, Saturday 26 March

Join Senior Curator Aaron Lister as he leads a tour through the exhibition to begin our final weekend of Hilma af Klint: The Secret Paintings. 

The recent rediscovery of Hilma af Klint's abstract paintings has changed the course of art and art history. A Swedish artist-mystic working at the turn of the twentieth century, af Klint saw herself as a receiver of messages from the spirit powers who guided the creation of her work. Af Klint recognised that the world was not ready for her work and anticipated a future more open to its message and possibilities. She left instructions that her work be kept secret until at least twenty years after her death. That time has come. 

We have been hugely privileged to share this exhibition with our audiences and now is your last chance to see these incredible works.  

No booking is required but please ensure you observe social distancing when visiting.   

A My Vaccine Pass will be required upon entry for those ages 12+ from Friday 3 December. Read our COVID-19 guidelines here.
