Antoni Tapies was one of the leading figures in the Catalan artistic movement known as "International Informalism". He is considered one of the most important Spanish artists of the 20th century.
After staying in Paris and New York, in 1948 he was among the first to join the Dau al Set movement, founded in Barcelona by the poet Joan Brossa.
In 1958 he presented a personal exhibition at the Venice Biennale. He went on to display his works at the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris and at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo.
In 1990 the Antoni Tàpies Foundation was inaugurated in Barcelona.
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
