Looking for something to do this weekend? If you're in LA, visit LACMA for the last weekend of Drawing Surrealism, an exhibition that explores the significance of drawing and works on paper to surrealist innovation. Long considered the medium of exploration and innovation, drawing was set free from its associations with other media and valued as a predominant means of expression and innovation with the advent of surrealism. Automatic drawings, exquisite cadavers, decalcomania, frottage, and collage, for example, are just a few of the processes invented by surrealists as means to tap into the subconscious realm. We went to see the exhibition yesterday and it was as if we were wandering through the halls of the museum on acid. Go see for yourself before they take down the show!
