8.2. – 19.5.2019 – Amos Rex

In spring 2019, for the first time in Finland, Amos Rex will be showing artworks by the Belgian surrealist famed for his pipe and bowler hat, René Magritte (1898–1967). On display will be works from different periods in Magritte’s career, providing a multifaceted overview of the development of the artist’s oeuvre. Magritte was a film enthusiast and, besides visual art, the exhibition’s supplementary programme will also take over the silver screen at the Bio Rex cinema.

The exhibition is being mounted in collaboration with MASI, Museo d’arte della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano, Switzerland. It has been curated by two Belgian surrealism experts, the Director of the Museum of Photography in Charleroi, Xavier Canonne, and the art historian Julie Waseige.
