Surrealism is not a style – but a state of mind. It aims to subvert reality. To find the uncanny in the everyday. To tap into our unconscious desires and bring dreams to life. And for many artists around the world, it has been a way to challenge authority and imagine a new world.
Previous stories of surrealism have focused on Paris in the 1920s. Based on extensive research, this exhibition in Tate Modern will reach across the world and over 50 years. It shows how artists around the world have been inspired and united by surrealism – from centres as diverse as Buenos Aires, Cairo, Lisbon, Mexico City, Prague, Seoul, and Tokyo.
There are many impressive works, and below is my favourite.
If you are a surrealist, well i am not unfortunately, this exhibition is definitely the one you shouldn’t miss. Surrealism Beyond Borders is presented in the Eyal Ofer Galleries, very easy to find. Enjoy!
