Rene Magritte: The Revealing Image – Photos and Films
19 January @ 10:00 am - 19 February @ 8:00 pm
Rene Magritte: The Revealing Image – Photos and Films will immerse visitors in 132 original photographs and eight films by the influential 20th century surrealist artist at ArtisTree in Taikoo Place. The photos and films – created between 1914 and 1967 – have never been exhibited in Asia and Europe before. Together with a series of educational programmes, the exhibition seeks to shed new light on Rene Magritte’s creative process and thinking. Admission and all activities are free of charge.
All original photographs and films are on loan from two private European collectors – the Magritte Foundation and the Museum of Photography Charleroi in Belgium. Curated by Xavier Canonne, who is also the Director of Museum of Photography Charleroi, the exhibition will be divided into six sections in non-chronological order. It will offer visitors a glimpse of an informal Magritte, his family and circle of friends, as well as insights into Magritte’s mind through his photographs and home videos that were only discovered in the 1970s, more than ten years after his death. The exhibition is being presented by Swire Properties’ ArtisTree and Ludion, a European independent art book publisher, in partnership with the Magritte Foundation Belgium.
