Virtual Symposium—Surrealism Beyond Borders

Nearly from its inception, Surrealism has had an international scope, but perspectives on the movement have been formed primarily through a Western European focus. The exhibition Surrealism Beyond Borders reconsiders the “movement” of Surrealism across boundaries of geography and chronology. This two-day series of conversations with leading scholars and artists continues to explore the issues raised in the exhibition, especially the blind spots, erasures, and challenges, and their consequences for thinking about Surrealism.
