Monsters & Myths: Surrealism and War in the 1930s and 1940s

From February 24, 2019 — May 26, 2019

Nearly 90 Surrealist masterworks of the 1930s and 1940s by artists such as Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, and André Masson are presented through a timely lens—that of war, violence, and exile.

This exhibition and related programs have been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg. Delights of an Undirected Mind

From February 24, 2019 — May 26, 2019

The psychologically charged installations and films by Berlin-based artists Nathalie Djurberg (Swedish, b. 1978) and Hans Berg (Swedish, b. 1978) are intended to spark our deepest fears and desires. Their painstakingly created stop-motion animations, set to a blend of psychedelic and techno music, along with fantastical large-scale installations, embrace Surrealist motifs, playing on the unnerving and illogical, all while tapping into the subconscious and absurd. The three featured contemporary fables introduce seemingly innocent characters, who transform into nightmarish beings—from a sly smoking wolf to a sexually uninhibited giraffe.

Expressions of Nature: Early 20th-Century Landscapes

From March 10, 2019 — September 22, 2019

From a charcoal drawing and spare and subtle watercolors to thickly painted bold explorations of color and form on canvas, this exhibition explores how a selection of European and American artists from the BMA’s collection depicted nature in the early 20th century.
