People who have saved this event:



Luxembourg & Dayan, London, Is Proud to Announce the Opening of René Magritte (or: the Rule of Metaphor), an Exhibition Dedicated to the Development of Magritte's Early Word-pictures.

Focusing Specifically on Magritte's Years in Paris Between 1927-30, This Exhibition Looks Beyond the Artist's Interest in and Use of Language, Seeking to Highlight the Evolution of His Word-pictures in the Context of Their Metaphorical Function. These Works, as Figurative, and Even Abstract Gestures Stand in for Conceptual Tropes, Forcing the Recipient of the Message to Complete an Unbridgeable Gap Using Their Imagination.
