This autumn, Moderna Museet Malmö is presenting surrealism as it has never before been shown. In the museum’s largest ever exhibition, THE SUPERSURREALISM takes over the entire building. Visitors are invited on a voyage in time that sets off in 1591 with Arcimboldo, and ends in 2012 with new works by Carsten Höller and Magnus Wallin. In between are works by classic surrealists such as Salvador Dalí, Meret Oppenheim and Max Ernst. THE SUPERSURREALISM looks at the time before, during and after the surrealist period, in an attempt to explore how surrealism is expressed today.
Does it still have its power to shock, surprise and outrage? Find out for yourself when THE SUPERSURREALISM opens on Malmö Gallery Night, 29 September at 6 pm-midnight. Free admission all evening!
On 30 September, at 3 pm, Museum Director and curator John Peter Nilsson will give a special tour of THE SUPERSURREALISM. (In Swedish).
