Paris and the Surrealists

BBK Room

The exhibition aims to set the artistic and intellectual atmosphere of Paris during the inter-war period in the context of the emergence of Surrealism, one of the fundamental creative movements of the 20th century. 270 works of art, selected by the art critic, Victoria Combalía, will attempt to draw the public closer to its transgressive character, the relationship between creators and disciplines, its complex relationship with politics and its subsequent influence.

Among the artists chosen are André Breton, Yves Tanguy, Francis Picabia, Man Ray, Giorgio de Chirico, Jean Arp, Oscar Domínguez, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Dorothea Tanning, Remedios Varo, Meret Oppenheim, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Dora Maar and Joan Miró.
