Featuring artworks by Surrealist artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miro, and Leonora Carrington, as well as contemporary artists like Kenny Scharf, Sergei Isupov, and Peter Milton—Beyond Dreams: Surrealism and Its Manifestations illustrates that the ideology, themes, and techniques of Surrealism are still alive today. Working in a range of mediums like painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and film, these artists have tapped into alternative states of reality, seeking to liberate their imagination. Today, artists have continued to explore common surreal themes such as dreams, fantasy, the uncanny, strange juxtapositions, and the manifestation of fears and desires. The artists in this exhibition have explored these themes through nontraditional techniques and materials in an effort to explore the potential of an individual’s unconscious to create artworks that exist outside of reason.
