Leaving Neverland, Jacob Collier, Dorothea Tanning at Tate Modern

How much should we separate art from the artist’s behaviour? With new sexual abuse allegations concerning Michael Jackson in the forthcoming documentary Leaving Neverland and R Kelly being charged with 10 counts of sexual abuse – writers Anna Leszkiewicz, Ekow Eshun and Dreda Say Mitchell consider the extent to which we should boycott or continue to appreciate an individual’s work in the light of questions over their behaviour. On the eve of his world tour, multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer, and Grammy award-winner Jacob Collier talks about working with an orchestra after his rise to fame as a solo performer. He also plays a composition from his latest record, Djesse Volume 1, live in the studio, the first of a quartet of albums to be released this year. Dorothea Tanning wanted to depict ‘unknown but knowable states’ in her work, flirting with ideas of surrealism and abstraction. Tanning was an American who emigrated with her husband Max Ernst to Paris in the 50s, where she moved away from painting to make sculptures out of fabric. As a retrospective of her work opens at Tate Modern and Virago re-publish her novel Chasm, we assess the life and work of Tanning, and consider if the new Tate show does her justice.
