Historically understood as a movement identified with male artists originating in Paris, Surrealism appealed to a number of female artists in Europe, Great Britain, America and Mexico, who used it as a vehicle to explore their own subconscious and dreams. Join Page Knox for a discussion of these fascinating female painters, sculptors and photographers, including Lee Miller, Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo, Frida Kahlo and Louise Bourgeois, who, in their journeys of self-discovery, ventured across the Atlantic to find new personal and universal truths.
