Joseph Cornell and Surrealism
The Fralin Museum of Art, 155 Rugby Road, Charlottesville, VA
This international loan exhibition focuses on the work of Joseph Cornell, the American pioneer of collage, montage, and assemblage art in the decades of the 1930s and 1940s. These years span both Cornell’s emergence and maturation as an artist and the heyday of surrealism in the United States. The exhibition will comprise some one hundred objects by Cornell and other artists and it will be accompanied by a significant publication featuring original essays by American and European scholars.
