New exhibition at the Musee National des Beaux Arts shines a light on surrealist women

3130.jpgMost of the artists that come to mind when you think of "surrealist art" tend to be men. Salvador Dali, Max Ernst and Andre Breton come to mind.

A new exhibit at the Musee National des Beaux Arts du Quebec is hoping to change that by shining a light on female surrealist artists whose work has often been overshadowed by their male counterparts.

Women like Frida Kahlo, Francesca Woodman and Remedios Varos.

Quebec AM's Julia Caron went to check it out yesterday, and gives us a tour.
