In conjunction with the exhibition The Conjured Life: The Legacy of Surrealism, join us Friday afternoons in February and March for a four-part film series exploring the rich tradition of Surrealist cinema, spanning from the movement’s origins in 1920s France through the 1980s and encompassing an eclectic mix of genres and styles including experimental narrative, found footage, essay films, animation, and collage. Featured artists include Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Jean Cocteau, Salvador Dali, Luis Buñuel, Maya Deren, Jean Genet, Chris Marker, Samuel Beckett, and more.
