Keeping it Surreal
This week sees the opening of the exhibition 'Keeping it surreal: Surrealism Beyond Borders' at the Tate Modern in London. To prepare your visit or to simply pretend you went there 😉 Art Explora has prepared a special playlist for you! From Dali to Chirico, with Dora Maar or Leonora Carrington, let's discover the works of these artists who used their dreams and the subconscious mind to create their art. Enjoy!

You’ve probably heard of Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, or Frida Kahlo. These surrealist artists created many amazing artworks. But do you know about the philosophy behind the movement? What does Freud have to do with Surrealism? Why did Dali show us his dreams and nightmares? And why did Magritte paint an image of “raining men”? Let’s find out in this story!
