Gallery Talk on Twilight Visions: Surrealism, Photography, and Paris
Thursday, October 29, 7:00 p.m.
Included with gallery admission
FRIST CENTER FOR THE VISUAL ARTS
Join Katie Delmez, curator at the Frist Center, for a tour of this Twilight Visions: Surrealism, Photography, and Paris.
Including more than 120 photographs by such artists as Man Ray, Eugène Atget, Brassaï, Hans Bellmer and André Kertész, Twilight Visions celebrates Paris as the literal and metaphoric foundation of Surrealism. In addition to examining the revolutionary social, aesthetic and political activities of the movement between the world wars, the exhibition focuses on works—predominantly photographs as well as select films, books and period ephemera—that evoke the mystery of the chance encounters experienced by the Surrealists as they wandered through the labyrinthine city streets.
Organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts with guest curator Therese Lichtenstein, Ph.D.
