Members' Morning View Daria Martin: Tonight the World

Members' Event

Daria Martin: Tonight the World

Members are invited to come and explore our current Curve installation at this exclusive morning view.

Artist and Jarman Award 2018 winner Daria Martin revisits dreams and memories from her personal family history to create a complex portrait of migration, loss and resilience.

Drawing upon dream diaries kept by her grandmother over a 35 year period, London-based artist Daria Martin creates a new installation for The Curve. Through atmospheric film and gaming technology Martin stages a series of intimate encounters, enveloping viewers in an exploration of the curious and traumatic history of her grandmother, who fled the imminent Nazi occupation of her country, Czechoslovakia.

Your ticket includes complimentary breakfast refreshments. Tickets are limited so must be booked in advance.

Our private views are extremely popular, if you're no longer able to attend drop us a line at Barbican Membership.

The gallery will be open from 8.30-10.30am for the private viewing. Members can book up to two tickets for this event, for them and a guest.

This exhibition has been commissioned by Barbican, London and co-commissioned by The Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco.

Additional support is provided by Maureen Paley, London, the South Moravian Film Endowment Fund, Czech Republic, St John’s College, Oxford, University of Oxford, and using public funding by Arts Council England.
