Television presenter and writer Dawn O’Porter takes us on a whistle-stop tour of nudity in art, from its origins 25,000 years ago to the present day.
With an unflinching gaze, O’Porter tackles the ever-changing rules of acceptability for representing and beholding flesh in art.
Unlock Art is Tate’s new short film series, offering a witty inside track on the world of art. Frank Skinner joins forces with new Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi, Alan Cumming and other celebrity art fans to introduce some of the big ideas that have shaped art history. A new film is released each month, with topics ranging from the history of the nude and the nature of the art market, to surrealism and Pop art.
Unlock Art is a collaboration between Tate and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts. As an ongoing supporter of Tate’s work, Le Méridien also sponsors the Outset/Frieze Art Fair Fund to benefit the Tate collection, which enables Tate to buy work by emerging artists at Frieze London
