Dadaism was an art movement dedicated to the notion that all of society’s moral or aesthetic values were rendered meaningless by WWI. Surrealism, which followed Dadaism, aimed to fill the void of meaninglessness, by trying to document our thought processes. Often leveraging the nascent tools of psychoanalysis, Surrealists explored ideas visually through diverse styles. Famous Surrealist artists include Dalí, Ernst, Magritte, Kahlo, Miró, and Klee.
The curated selection of works seen here evoke Surrealism, either by leveraging the concepts in new styles or by imitation of the famous Surrealists themselves.
