This month our free ten minute talks celebrate women in the arts. On Sunday at Tate Britain, a guide will tell you the story of this portrait by Gwen John of her friend Dorelia who she studied together with at the Slade School of Art.

IS THIS REALLY ART?
Is it? Decide for yourself in our new exhibition by young people from Hayle Youth Project in collaboration with @tatestives. All the works are inspired by artists who were in the Modern Art and St Ives display. Open 20-25 March in the Foyle Studio.
'I was interested in how an audience might feel uneasy as they were caught looking at themselves in the performance. In a way, narcissism is the nature of the medium' - #JoanJonas
In Joan Jonas' work Mirror Piece II, performers carefully perform actions with mirrors and glass. This work established Joan Jonas as a pioneering figure in performance. See it in action from today and across the whole of the week at Tate Modern. Search 'mirror piece' in our site for all the deets.
