Description

PFAC’s first survey of Surrealism, this exhibition presents the richness and diversity of this obsessive but very human and constant theme through paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, books, and film. The selection ranges in date from the decade anticipating the first manifestations of Surrealism in 1924 to more recent years. Some artists used highly realistic means to depict the imagery of a dream, while others made more abstract works, both resulting in extraordinary creative efforts. Such Surrealist luminaries as Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Wifredo Lam, Roberto Matta and Salvador Dalí are represented, as well as other artists.
