2016 Hillsborough County Student Surrealist Art Exhibit: “Between Dream & Reality”
January 15 – March 6, 2016
“I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream & reality, which are seemingly contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, so to speak.” –Andre Bretón, Founder of Surrealism
About this year’s exhibit
The Surrealists lived within two worlds: the real and the dream, the conscious and the subconscious, the rational and the fantastical. With this year’s exhibit, we invite the students to create their own “surreality” by employing one or more of the following techniques:
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.
Students are welcome to explore a variety of media such as drawing, collage, watercolor, acrylic, digital photography, and mixed media. In order to accept as many works as possible, the exhibit restricts works to a finished 8”x10” size with no additional borders or mats. If accepted into the show, the Dali Museum frames the work.
