Slice of Life
This little tidbit should come as great news to readers in the UK but Matisse fans everywhere else will have to be patient: Tickets are now on sale for Matisse Live from Tate Modern, a special 90-minute film to be broadcast in theaters (cinemas, if you prefer the regional parlance) throughout Britain and Northern Ireland on June 3rd. The screening will offer viewers a virtual tour of Tate's monumental exhibition, Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs, but also provide a peek at the mounting of the museum's new show and a look at less frequently seen footage of the artist in his studio.
If similar happenings are planned by MoMA, when the show travels to NYC in the fall, I'll keep you posted.
Shown above is the hardcover exhibition catalog sold by Tate with the iconic Blue Nude on the front; the book should become available in the U.S. end of May
