“I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, if one may so speak.” ― André Breton, Manifestoes of Surrealism
Breton published his Manifeste du surréalisme in 1924, signaling the beginning of an artistic realm. The award winning artists The Modbo presents in this show may not consider themselves to technically be surrealists, but their work invites the viewer to access the subconscious. We invite you to wade in and experience a different world in this once-in-a-lifetime, all star exhibition.
Additionally, please join us for the first in our new lecture series: Sound Smart at the Museum: SurREALism Style. Saturday, February 13th. 3:30-5:30 pm. $15. RSVP to the firstname.lastname@example.org
