Gallery Talk - The Conjured Life: The Legacy of Surrealism

Jodi Roberts, Robert M. and Ruth L. Halperin Curator for Modern and Contemporary Art, and Lynne Warren, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, discuss The Conjured Life: The Legacy of Surrealism.
Ms. Warren is Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago where she has organized over 30 solo exhibitions of artists ranging from Robert Heinecken: Photographist (1999) and Dan Peterman: Plastic Economies (2004) to Jim Nutt: Coming Into Character (2011). Major exhibitions include Alexander Calder: Form, Balance, Joy (2010), the H.C. Westermann exhibition and catalogue raisonné projects (2001), both of which traveled nationally, and Art in Chicago, 1945-1995 (1997) which produced the first comprehensive book of Chicago’s unique art history. Most recently she mounted the well-received exhibition Surrealism: The Conjured Life from the MCA’s extensive surrealist holdings.
