Surrealist women at Manchester Art Gallery: watch the trailer

0 Posted by 1 October 2009

Surrealism, in all its phantasmagoric glory, has been around for almost a century. 2009 marks the 90th anniversary of the movement and yet, in all that time, the female Surrealists, those uncompromising women who rejected the role of the muse for that of the artist, have gone largely unnoticed. Until now, that is – because last week saw the opening of Angels of Anarchy, the first ever attempt to survey the work of Surrealist women. And with 150 artworks by over 30 artists, and work on loan from Tate, Pompidou and the Museo De Arte Moderno (Mexico), it looks set to be a blockbuster. Unconvinced? Watch the exhibition trailer here.
