Strange
Berkeley Art Museum (BAMPFA), Berkeley CA

The exhibition’s theme was inspired by the 100th anniversary of Surrealism and the selections are meant to suggest the many resonances with the Surrealist sensibility that have been expressed by artists in many cultures and over hundreds of years. Strange was organized by BAMPFA Director and Chief Curator Lawrence Rinder with Associate Curator Stephanie Cannizzo and Associate Film Curator Kate MacKay.
