surrealism beyond borders

Sandro Ricaldone

SURREALISM BEYOND BORDERS
Edited by Stephanie D’Alessandro and Matthew Gale
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2021

Challenging conventional narratives of a revolutionary artistic, literary, and philosophical movement, this publication traces Surrealism’s influence and legacy from the 1920s to the late 1970s in places as geographically diverse as Colombia, Czechoslovakia, Egypt, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the Philippines, Romania, Syria, Thailand, and Turkey. The catalogue includes more than 300 works of art in a variety of media by well-known figures—including Dalí, Ernst, Kahlo, Magritte, and Miró—as well as numerous artists who are less widely known.

Contributions from more than forty distinguished international scholars explore the network of Surrealist exchange and collaboration, artists’ responses to the challenges of social and political unrest, and the experience of displacement and exile in the twentieth century. The multiple narratives addressed in this expansive book move beyond the borders of history, geography, and nationality to provocatively redraw the map of Surrealism.

Stephanie D’Alessandro is the Leonard A. Lauder Curator of Modern Art and Senior Research Coordinator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Matthew Gale is Senior Curator at Larger at Tate Modern.

Look back, think forward: re-shaping the Nordic avant garde

Tate Modern, East Room
Saturday 14 May 2016, 15.00 – 17.00

This panel considers the recent artistic and curatorial tendencies towards looking back and unearthing, re-working and collaborating with historic avant-garde art practices in the Nordic countries to rethink the future. Challenging the Western canon of feminist, situationist and participatory art histories, how might re-imagining past practices make a meaningful impact on the shifting socio-political dynamics of contemporary Northern Europe?

Series chair Jonas Ekeberg will be joined by panellists; artist and curator Henrik Andersson, artist and editor Cecilia Grönberg, curator Joasia Krysa and artist Eline Mugaas.

Cecilia Grönberg will talk about image editing in relation to projects of alternative historiography, with examples from issues of OEI magazine and her books in collaboration with Jonas (J) Magnusson on the Swedish avant garde-artists Berndt Petterson (För pås-seende. Berndt Pettersons collage och bokstavskonst, 2012) and Leif Eriksson (forthcoming).
