Surrealism emerged in Paris in the early 1920s, at first mainly through literature and poetry and later through writing, drawing, painting, photography, performance, exhibitions and game-playing. Developed by artists and writers from around Europe, Surrealist ideas were radical; the Surrealists hoped to launch a revolution of the mind that would lead to profound social and political change. Surrealist Art at Te Papa | He Toi Pohewa at Te Papa is the first major Surrealist exhibition presented in Aotearoa since the 1970s. This catalogue includes a substantial text about the Surrealist movement and its leading artists, plus all the works from the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam that appear in this exciting major show.
