What’s on: Major Surrealist art exhibition takes over Te Papa

What: A collection of world-famous Surrealist art is exhibiting at Wellington’s Te Papa museum, showcasing 180 pieces from the likes of Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington and René Magritte. The exhibition Surrealist Art: Masterpieces from Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen comes from Rotterdam’s Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and features paintings, graphic prints, photography, sculpture and even furniture.

“Surrealist artists tried to create a new kind of reality which was centred around dreams, the unconscious, and the irrational. They used playful, subversive techniques and materials to shock and surprise their audiences,” says Te Papa Head of Art Charlotte Davy.

“Visitors will be struck by the power of Surrealist ideas which are still incredibly relevant today – both politically and as an influence on contemporary artists.”

Where: Te Papa Museum, Wellington

When: 12 June – 31 October 2021.
