9 April 26 - September 2022
"Surrealism and Magic. Enchanted Modernity", this is the exhibition that will animate the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice from 9 April to 26 September 2022, before moving to the Barberini Museum in Potsdam. This is the first exhibition organised after a two-year pandemic, the first internationally to address the Surrealists' interest in magic and the occult.
From a chronological point of view, the exhibition ranges from Giorgio de Chirico's metaphysical painting, dating from around 1915, to iconic paintings such as Max Ernst's The Dressing of the Bride (1940) and Victor Brauner's The Lovers (1947), to the occult symbolism of the late works of Leonora Carrington and Remedios Varo.
