If art imitates life, why couldn’t the reverse be true? The young poet, André Breton, posed the philosophical idea that life and art were synchronous in his Surrealist Manifesto (published in 1924), ushering in one of the most dynamic art movements in history. Drawing influences from dreams, myths and the dissolution of reality, the Surrealist movement crossed mediums ranging from literature to painting, photography and film.
Le Surréalisme Exhibition will be showcasing Surrealist superstars such as Salvador Dalí, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Cornell, as well as an impressive collection of objects, paintings and film at the National Art Center on loan from the Pompidou Center in Paris. An absolute must.
