Modern Couples: Art, Intimacy And The Avant-GardeAn exploration of how relationships can become a playground for activity, Modern Couples puts the work of over 40 artist couples on display at the Barbican. Legendary duos like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, Dora Maar and Pablo Picasso and Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin are shown side by side to reveal the transformative impact these artists had on each other. Love letters, personal photographs, gifts and rare material feature. "Ultimately it is an exhibition about modern art and modern love," - Jane Alison, Head of Visual Arts at the Barbican.
