Fantastic Women – Surreal Worlds From Meret Oppenheim to Frida Kahlo during a Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen: Jun 18 – Sep 27, 2020
The womanlike pioneers of Surrealism done a noted impact on their transformation – André Breton’s middle round was filled with women artists, many of whom showed in seminal Surrealist exhibitions of a day – but, as is so mostly a box in art history, their achievements have been overshadowed by those of their masculine contemporaries. Next summer, however, an muster during Copenhagen’s Louisiana Museum looks to calibrate a balance. The initial vital consult of a womanlike Surrealists’ output, it will embody some 250 works of painting, sculpture, drawing, photography and film by 30 women artists from a US, Mexico and Europe. Big names like Frida Kahlo, Louise Bourgeois and Meret Oppenheim will be displayed alongside lesser-known artists including Kay Sage, Leonor Fini and Toyen. Each artist’s particular grant to a Surrealist vernacular will be explored, as good as a overarching themes and ideas that couple them. A partnership with Frankfurt’s Schirn museum, a muster will show in Germany in Feb before travelling to Copenhagen.
