Update: Exhibition dedicated to Romanian-born Victor Brauner opens in Paris
An exhibition dedicated to Romanian-born surrealist Victor Brauner (1903–1966) opens at the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris on September 18.
The exhibition, titled Je suis le rêve. Je suis l'inspiration, covers both paintings and drawings, some of them on display for the first time since the previous Paris retrospective, held at the Musée National d'Art Moderne in 1972.
It follows stages such as Beginnings in Romania (1920–1925), Paris and the Shock of Surrealism (1925–1932), The Surrealist Adventure (1933–1939), The Black Frontiers of the War (1939–1945), The Conglomeros (1941-1945), After the War (1946–1948), and Beyond Surrealism (1949–1966).
Born in Piatra-Neamt, in northeastern Romania, Brauner was involved in the avant-garde artistic activity in the Bucharest of 1920s. From 1925 onward, he regularly traveled to Paris, where he settled definitively in 1938.
The exhibition is open at the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris until January 10, 2021.
Update: The exhibition will not be on show at the Barnes Foundation, as initially reported, as the Barnes Foundation's exhibition schedule changed due to the temporary closure in spring - summer of this year to limit the spread of Covid-19.
