Surrealism: Imagining A New World

Surrealism: Imagining A New World

Why did Surrealism appeal to artists all over the world?

Curator Carine Harmand traces how the Surrealist movement was taken up by artists in Egypt, Mexico, and by African American artists in the US, as a way to challenge authority and imagine a new world.

Traditional stories of Surrealism have focused on Paris in the 1920s, but here Harmand explores how artists across the globe have been inspired and united by Surrealism as part of an international network.
