Dorothea Tanning in 'Photography and the Surreal Imagination', the Menil Collection, Houston

5 February - 14 June 2020


Dorothea Tanning is included in Photography and the Surreal Imagination at the Menil Collection, Houston. This group exhibition reveals the wide reach of the surrealist imagination in modern and contemporary photography. Anchored in historical Surrealism, it explores the tension between documentation and invention, exploring images that veer between truth and suggestion.


A collage by Tanning titled Still Calling, Still Hoping (1988), which includes a photocopy of the artist’s own hand, features in the show.


On view until 14 June 2020.
