Surrealism and the Dream
The lack of attention that has been paid in the world of art to the relationship between Surrealism and the Dream is both odd and telling. There have been many exhibitions devoted to Surrealism in general, or one or another of its aspects in particular. And quite a few focusing on dreams, from very different premises, which in some instances have included a few aspects or sections, necessarily partial, devoted to Surrealism. But up until now there has been no single art show that addresses, in monographic form and with the depth required, this central and intensely suggestive subject matter: Surrealism and the Dream. This exhibition is situated, then,in “almost virgin” territory.
