Abstract

Exhibitions Surrealism and Magic 26 January–5 April 2015, Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton FL . With its genesis in the personal library of artist Kurt Seligmann, the acknowledged magic expert of the surrealist group, this exhibition examines the surrealists’ interests in magic, the supernatural, and indigenous spirituality as expressed in their art and writings. By illuminating this less-studied aspect of their practice, Surrealism and Magic will consider how historical sources and world events drove surrealist artists to seek a magical presence in their world. Along with rare books on magic and witchcraft from the fifteenth through twentieth centuries from Seligmann’s library (acquired by Cornell University upon the artist’s death in 1962), magic-themed works of art by Seligmann will be shown with drawings, collages, and paintings by other surrealists and artists in their circle, including André Breton, Victor Brauner, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Leonora Carrington, Dorothea Tanning, Roberto Matta, Jean Dubuffet, Enrico Donati, and Wifredo Lam. Books, pamphlets, correspondence, ephemera, and film will contextualize the concept of magic, trace surrealism’s changing presence both in Paris and the Americas during World War II , express the viewpoints of key figures, and reveal the surrealists’ interest in the American
