Join Barbican's Head of Visual Art and Curator of Postwar Modern,  Jane Alison, for a tour of the exhibition, focusing on the revelatory work of women during this period.

Postwar Modern: New Art in Britain 1945-65 is a landmark reassessment of the art produced in Britain after the Second World War, a period when artists had to make sense of an entirely altered world. Focusing on ‘the new’, the exhibition features 48 artists and around 200 works of painting, sculpture, photography, collage and installation.

Please meet at the entrance to the gallery. Our team on site will be able to help with any questions on the day.
