WOW Presents: Surrealist Rene Magritte

Wednesday, May 9, 2018 2:00 PM
Located at the Community Hall
Independent art lecturer and museum docent Avril Angevine explores the intriguing Surrealist Painter Rene Magritte. Featuring bowler hats, large apples, and pipes that aren't pipes, Magritte's paradoxical images are among the most familiar and fascinating of the 20th century. Magritte began in the Surrealist idiom but experimented with a variety of styles before moving back into his own distinctive "hypertropic" style in the 1950s, in which wild shifts of scale and context create a mixture of mystery, illusion, and reality. This lecture complements the SFMOMA exhibit "Rene Magritte: The Fifth Season" on view from May 19 - October 28, 2018.
