A Closer Look at the Shell Guides

Guest Curator David Heathcote will give an informal gallery-based talk about the Shell Guides, and their importance in the development of twentieth century art and design.

MoDA's temporary exhibition 'The Shell Guides: Surrealism, Modernism, Tourism'(4th March - 2nd November 08) explores the creative forces that created the Shell County Guides, and considers their widespread cultural influence on our understanding of Britain and Britishness. Guest Curator David Heathcote will give a number of gallery talks, focusing on examples from the exhibition itself.
