The Supersurrealism
MALMO  •  Moderna Museet  •  Ongoing

Moderna Museet has an eminent collection of surrealism from the crucial years round 1920-40, comprising paintings, sculptures and objects. It includes Louise Bourgeois, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Wilhelm Freddie, Alberto Giacometti, Francis Picabia, Man Ray and Meret Oppenheim. These artists, together with the equally prominent photographers Brassaï, Hans Bellmer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Kertész, Lotte Jacobi and Paul Strand, films by Luis Buñuel and Maya Deren from the same period, will form the core of the exhibition, which also features works from the period after the Second World War to today. 
Contemporary works by artists such as Nathalie Djurberg, Dana Schutz and Magnus Wallin are juxtaposed with post-war existential depths, 1960s psychedelic art, sexual liberation and transgressive approaches on identity. The prehistory of surrealism is dealt with in a spatial curiosity cabinet.

Curator: John Peter Nilsson
