June 7 - August 18, 2013
One of the hallmarks of Surrealism is its ability to defamiliarize: to create something unique, unexpected and unfamiliar
from one's everyday surroundings in order to surprise, shock and disturb. Surrealism invites us into a world where even
the most seemingly insignificant occurrences of everyday life can be made strange.
With this year's exhibit, we invite the students to explore the "Strangely Familiar" by employing techniques used by the
Surrealists such as:
- Dislocation: Familiar objects are placed in an odd, bizarre, humorous, or unusual setting.
- Juxtaposition: Two or more unrelated images are placed side by side; creating unexpected object combinations.
- Transformation/Metamorphosis: Familiar images are changed in form, appearance, nature, condition, character or function to become unusual or strange.
