Masters of Surrealism: Picasso, Dali, and Miro
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.
Surrealism in Children’s Books
Accompanying this exhibition and within the context of children’s literature, the surrealist method has manifested itself in puzzling stories with an odd array of anomalistic characters and fantasy lands. Illustrations from Maurice Sendak, Brian Pinkney, Dr. Suess, Uri Shulevitz, Wizard of Oz, and Serge Bloch, will delight young visitors and their families. This exhibition was curated by Diana Blanchard Gross and Neal Sokol
