On November 9, Tate Modern members can get a private view of The Radical Eye, which opens the following day. They are invited to book now for the guided tour.
 

If the 9th isn’t convenient, they also have the option of getting a free tour (with a London Private View Pass), on November 16; December 6; or March 28, 2017.
 
The Radical Eye is from one of the world’s greatest private collections of photography, drawn from the classic Modernist period of the 1920s–50s. A group of Man Ray portraits are exhibited together for the first time, having been brought together by Sir Elton over the past twenty-five years, including portraits of Matisse, Picasso, and Breton.

With over 70 artists and nearly 150 rare vintage prints on show from seminal figures including Brassai, Imogen Cunningham, André Kertész, Dorothea Lange, Tina Modotti, and Aleksandr Rodchenko, this is an opportunity to take a peek inside Elton’s home and enjoy seeing such masterpieces of photography.

Eltonjohnworld.com has previously mentioned that the EJAF is hosting a benefit at London’s Tate Modern, on the first of December, in association with Bulgari.

The Radical Eye Dinner and Private View starts at 7 p.m.

Elton says he considers it a great honour to be able to lend these pieces to the museum. He believes the modernist era in photography is one of the key moments within the medium.

Tate‘s Director, Nicholas Serota, says it will be a unique exhibition with iconic works.

”There are few collections of modernist photography in the UK, so we are delighted that Sir Elton John has allowed us to draw on his incredible collection.”

The exhibit itself runs through May 7, 2017.
