Student Surrealist Art Exhibits, 2015

“Psyched Out: Reinvented Myths”

February 20 – August 30, 2015

“Myths are works of art and like works of art their validity lies not in a simple factual truth but in their power to explain, to give form and meaning to human ideas and feelings.” Claude Levi-Strauss, anthropologist

About this year’s exhibit:
Surrealism drew on familiar myths as well as created new myths in order to understand the human psyche. Sigmund Freud, father of modern psychology and hero to Surrealists, saw ancient Greek and Roman myths as bearers of truth and a way to understand the mind. Salvador Dali often appropriated and transformed popular myths and stories as a way to explore and symbolize personal experiences (Narcissus, William Tell, Oedipus Rex). This year, we challenge students to explore the mythic in their everyday world, to recast something familiar into the mythic or to create a new myth entirely.

This year, we encourage students to look to any kind of “myth:” classical myths, legends, folk tales, children’s stories, religious stories, creation stories, paintings of myths (or making a painting mythic) and modern legends.

Students explore a variety of media such as drawing, collage, watercolor, acrylic, digital photography, and mixed media.
Through this exhibit, the Dali Museum seeks to make a difference in the community by recognizing the role our art teachers play in their students’ development, and by encouraging students to continue exploring new ideas and creative thinking in all fields of education. This exhibit is separated into three separate shows; the Hillsborough County exhibit is shown Feb 20 – Mar 22, the Pinellas County exhibit is shown Mar 27 – Apr 26 and a statewide exhibit is shown June 12 – Aug 30.
