Poetry and Dreams: Surrealism

Whether you are new to the history of art world or someone who wishes to brush up on their existing knowledge, these talks set in an award winning gallery and museum might be just what you are looking for. Suitable for age 16+. Advance booking required.

The essence of Surrealism is rooted in Freud’s work on the interpretation of dreams, with the idea that dreams can seem more ‘real’ than everyday reality. The other important element is the idea of the ‘automatic’, when a work of art is created directly from the subconscious, as though the artist has no control over what his or her pencil or brush will produce.
