When Leonora Carrington eloped with Max Ernst in 1937, she took a one-way ticket out of both her country and her family. For the next 70 years she had virtually nothing to do with either: but in 2006 her cousin, journalist Joanna Moorhead, became intrigued by her story and travelled to Mexico in search of her. The two became friends, and Joanna visited her eight more times before her death in 2011. Join Joanna Moorhead at Tate Liverpool for a guided tour where she will explore the family story hidden within Carrington’s work, and describes her remarkable relationship with the black sheep who went on to become the national treasure of a country thousands of miles from the Lancashire where she was born.
