“In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States”
A landmark exhibition of LACMA on the surrealist movement of women artists closed today! It showed an impressive collection of relevant artworks by major figures of this art movement like Frida Kahlo, Leonora Carrington, Lee Miller, Kay Sage, Dorothea Tanning, and Remedios Varo.
These expressive pieces of artwork deal with self discovery, self analysis and searching for identity . They seem to have a life of its own and put the viewer under a spell, where one can feel the creators’ pain, but also their curiosity in finding answers to life’s questions and dealing with life’s tragic turns.
Having opened in the end of January 2012 the exhibition closed today, May 6th. For the one who didn’t get a chance to see this magnificent art show, here is a slideshow with some of the works displayed at LACMA.
