Everyday Dreams: Surrealist Art & Culture

This course will focus on the most influential 20th century art movement, Surrealism. In its quest to seek out the marvellous in the everyday, Surrealism did not restrict itself to being an art movement; on the contrary it was influential on, and heavily involved with a variety of visual cultures, ranging from film and photography to fashion and advertising. This course will explore these surrealist manifestations and will cover an international range of well-known and less famous Surrealist artists.

The course will include a curator-led guided tour of the exhibition Angels of Anarchy: Women Artists and Surrealism at Manchester Art Gallery. (Please note that the entrance fee for the exhibition is not included in the course fee).

The course will be led by Dr Patricia Allmer, curator of Angels of Anarchy, author of René Magritte: Beyond Painting, and Research Fellow at MIRIAD, Manchester Metropolitan University.

Beginners’ level – no prior knowledge required.
