Celebrate 100 years since the publication of the Surrealist Manifesto in this exhibition marking the past and present of one of the biggest art movements.
Marking 100 years since Surrealism began in 1924 with the publication of the ‘Manifesto of Surrealism’ by the poet and critic André Breton, Forbidden Territories is a comprehensive survey exhibition which traces how Surrealists explored landscape as a metaphor for the unconscious.
On display will be major works of art from the 1920s to the 1940s, including Eileen Agar, Salvador Dalí, Man Ray, continuing with later artists such as Edith Rimmington, Marion Adnams and Conroy Maddox. Interventions by contemporary artists influenced by Surrealism, such as Helen Marten, will appear throughout.
