Summary
Chicago has for decades been one of the most prominent cities where European surrealism is avidly collected and displayed. However, there has yet to be a scholarly exhibition and catalogue that addresses the local manifestations of this international mode of art. This book focuses on a select group of painters whose work in the 1940s and 50's both transformed the domestic and domesticated the surrealist, particularly in Chicago. Working independently, but within a chain of social and artistic relationships, this group explored the interior as a site of projected imagination and fantasy, and the self as the generator of such altered perception. Including contributions by Robert Cozzolino, Adam Jolles, and Joanna Pawlik, the book provides a richly illustrated account of an international movement's unlikely - but somehow ever so fitting - home in America. Exhibition: The Arts Club of Chicago, USA (7.6. - 22.8.2018)
