The exhibition brings together more than one hundred works by 18 female surrealist artists who obtained a leading role after rebelling against the social and moral imperatives of their time.
Frida Kahlo, Dora Maar, Maruja Mallo, Lee Miller, Ángeles Santos, Dorothea Tanning, Remedios Varo, and Germaine Dulac are a few of the artists represented in this exhibition. It presents the work of a group of women artists who were a part of surrealism, an avant-garde movement historically associated with men. The individualism and personality of these creators is reflected in the paintings, drawings, sculptures, collages, photographs and films on show.These women fought for their own identities and freedom through art, coming to prominence in the surrealist milieu, and soon distancing themselves from a movement which almost always considered them as muses rather than artists. Sometimes eclipsed or exploited by their male partners, their lives and art challenged the impositions and conventions of society.
