Surreal Friends: Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo, Kati Horna19. Jun - 12. Sep 10 / ended Pallant House Gallery
Adults £7.50 (Children £2.30, students £4, family £17)
Leonora Carrington (b. 1917), Remedios Varo (1908- 1963) and Kati Horna (1912-2000) - an English painter, a Spanish painter and a Hungarian photographer - met in Mexico City in 1943. All three had recently fled war-torn Europe and together they shared memories of Paris, Surrealism, the Spanish Civil War, and the outbreak of World War II. Surreal Friends, a major season of international exhibitions at Pallant House Gallery, celebrates the friendship of these three women. It represents the first substantial display of Carrington's work in Britain for almost twenty years, and the first ever comprehensive showing of works by her friends Varo and Horna in the UK.
