Curator’s Tour Monsters & Myths: Surrealism and War in the 1930s and 1940s
Please note, this event has expired.
A Members-Only Curator’s Tour will be held on Friday, July 12, at noon.
Featuring works by Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, and more, Monsters & Myths: Surrealism and War in the 1930s and 1940s examines the ways in which artists responded to unsettling world events, such as Hitler’s rise to power and World War II—events that profoundly challenged the revolutionary hopes that had inspired the Surrealists in the 1920s. Join Frist Art Museum chief curator Mark Scala on this one-hour tour of the exhibition to learn more about how these artists utilized the myth of the monster to comprehend the effects of war on society.
