Argomento: cataloghi in mostra
Sotto-categoria: Arte e spettacolo
Descrizione: Meret Oppenheim (1913-1985) is one of the most celebrated artists of the 20. century: she is the almost legendary figure of a woman who managed to become a well-established member of the Surrealist movement, as well as to develop her own and highly personal research. The exhibition in Lugano casts light on the close-knit pattern of personal and creative relationships that linked the artist to fellow artists who were older and in many cases already famous at the time – Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Jean Arp, among others – documented through some of their most significant works. We can get an understanding of Meret’s own interpretation of the themes that were typical of Surrealism, as well as of how she herself influenced the movement thanks to her personality and charisma.
