About

Founded around the turn of the century in Paris, surrealism is often considered both a cultural and revolutionary art movement. It proposed that the Enlightenment - the influential 17th- and 18th- century intellectual movement that championed reason and individualism - had suppressed the superior qualities of the irrational, unconscious mind and surrealism’s goal was to liberate thought, language, and human experience from the oppressive boundaries of rationalism. 

Surrealist painters were influenced by the fantastic and grotesque images of earlier painters such as Hieronymus Bosch and Francisco Goya as well as contemporaries such Giorgio de Chirico and Marc Chagall. Icons of the surrealist movement include artists such as Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, Rene Magritte (cover image), Frida Kahlo and Max Ernst.

Presenting artwork by a selection of gallery and invited artists, Masquerade promises to be a glorious expedition into both identity and contemporary surrealism.
