Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design 1924 – Today

Exhibitions
From
until
Surrealism was one of the most influential art movements of the twentieth century. Many works of Surrealists like Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Meret Oppenheim, and Man Ray were inspired by everyday objects and explored the world of dreams, emotions. Since the 1930s, Surrealism has had a strong impact on design, from furniture, interiors, and fashion to film and graphic design. In fall 2019 the Vitra Design Museum will devote the first major exhibition to the fascinating creative dialogue between Surrealism and design that continues to this day. »Objects of Desire« will juxtapose surrealist art works with design icons by some of the most prominent artists and designers of the past one hundred years to reveal fascinating parallels and cross-pollination.
