Surrealists to Milan

From 22 March on, 180 Surrealist works from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam will be exhibited at Mudec in Milan. The museum’s travelling exhibition ensures that people in other parts of the world can get to know the art collection of the city of Rotterdam in person.

From Rotterdam to Milan
The exhibition in Milan (22 March – 30 July 2023) is a wonderful chance to see Boijmans’ Surrealism Highlights in dialogue with some masterpieces from Mudec’s permanent collection. It explores the fundamental themes of Surrealist research: dreams and reality, the psyche, love and desire and a new type of beauty. Through the works of lesser-known Surrealists, publications and historical documents, the exhibition provides visitors with a 360-degree view of the Surrealist universe. The exhibition is curated by Boijmans art historian Els Hoek in collaboration with Alessandro Nigro, professor of History of Art and Art Criticism at the University of Florence.

Surrealism Highlights
'Surrealist Art. Masterpieces from Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’ will introduce a broad audience to Surrealist visual art as collected in Rotterdam. The exhibits include the Freudian Venus de Milo with Drawers by Dalí, Not to Be Reproduced by René Magritte and Again the Gemini are in the Orchard, a dream-like fantasy by Leonora Carrington. Less well-known but equally fascinating are works by the Dutch Surrealist Kristians Tonny, and Unica Zürn, a German poet-turned-artist who joined the Surrealist movement in Paris after the Second World War.
