Paul Éluard: Poetry, Politics, Love

September 3, 2022 – January 8, 2023

Paul Éluard: Poetry, Politics, Love explores the world of the most celebrated and idealistic of all surrealist poets, Paul Éluard. Known as “the Poet of Freedom,” Éluard helped found Surrealism, the French art movement whose poetry celebrated dreams, love and freedom. The exhibition has three sections: one exploring his transition from surrealist poet to communist poet, one focused on his love of poetry and the significant loves of his life, and a final section presenting several examples of his poetry from various periods of his career.

The Visit

June 18, 2022 – October 23, 2022

The Visit by Yamandú Canosa presents the work of Uruguayan-Spanish artist Yamandú Canosa (born 1954). Through the exhibition, Canosa creates a contemplative dialogue between Surrealism and contemporary art. In the words of the artist, “The exhibition is intended as a visit that contemporary art pays to the house of Surrealism. One of the great legacies of the surrealist movement is its aesthetic complexity. This is confirmed by its permanence in today’s art. Surrealism is about an attitude, not aesthetic formulas: it is a way of looking at and relating to experience”.
