Leonor Fini / Pourquoi pas?
FEBRUARY 2 - MAY 11, 2014

The exhibition opens on Sunday, 2 February, at 3 pm. Inauguration speech by Bildmuseet's Director Katarina Pierre and Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Ambassador of France in Sweden.

Sunday, 27 April, at 2 pm.
Leonor Fini: An Independent Voice That Shaped Surrealist History
Whitney Chadwick, art historian and author of the book, Women Artists and the Surrealist Movement, and Richard Overstreet, Director of the Leonor Fini Archives, Paris, give a guided tour of the exhibition, Leonor Fini / Pourquoi pas?

Warmest welcome!

Leonor Fini was a noted artist and personality in European cultural life of the last century. Her work challenged conventional ideas by questioning the boundaries between feminine and masculine, myth and reality, consciousness and the unconscious. She went emphatically her own way, and her work is characterized by a radical, consistent and individual approach.

Leonor Fini’s many-sided oeuvre is now presented for the first time in the Nordic countries. The exhibition comprises works from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s, and presents paintings, drawings, objects, book illustrations and costume sketches for theatre, ballet, and opera.

This exhibition is curated by Brita Täljedal, Cecilia Andersson and Anna Rådström who extend their gratitude to Arlette Souhami, Galerie Minsky, Paris, and Richard Overstreet, The Leonor Fini Archives, Paris.

The exhibition is produced by Bildmuseet with the support of Umeå2014 – European Capital of Culture.
