“In Wonderland” at LACMA

The exhibition In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art – LACMA, is one of the best I’ve seen in many years.

In Wonderland features the work of some fifty women artists from around the world who are active in North America. It includes works by famous Mexican artists such as Frida Kahlo, Remedios Varo, and María Izquierdo, and paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography and film by Dorothea Tanning, Kay Sage, and Louise Bourgeois among many others. This is definitely a must see.

LACMA has a number of other interesting exhibits, including California Design 1930–1965: “Living in a Modern Way” and “Ellsworth Kelly: Prints and Paintings” but if you must choose only one, definitely go see In Wonderland.  Here are some pictures of this fantastic exhibition:
