De Tranen van Eros

15 Feb - 24 May - Centraal Museum, Utrecht
€ 18,50 - Free for members

From mid February until the end of May, Centraal Museum Utrecht showcases and celebrates works of contemporary artists delving into the world of surrealism.  In this exhibition the work of the only officially recognized Dutch surrealist Johannes Moesman (1909-1988) is placed in the context of his international contemporaries. Moesman depicted his sexual fantasies while they were still submerged in taboo. His works were a leap to freedom from the suffocating conformity. In addition to Salvador Dalí, René Magritte and Max Ernst, Centraal Museum switches the focal point towards female surrealists, such as Claude Cahun, Leonora Carrington, Leonor Fini and a myriad of contemporaries as Sarah Lucas, Gillian Wearing, Paul Kooiker and Viviane Sassen.
