January 29- May 9, 2010

Twilight Visions: Surrealism, Photography, and Paris, a portrait of a city in transition as seen through the eyes of Brassaï, André Kertész, Ilse Bing, Man Ray, and others, will be on view at the International Center of Photography from January 29 through May 9, 2010. Organized by guest curator Therese Lichtenstein, Twilight Visions offers a unique insight into the impact of the Surrealist aesthetic on those photographers working in Paris in the 1920’s and ‘30s. Presenting over 150 photographs, magazines, films, and ephemera of the period, the exhibition highlights the visionary role that photographers played in both the avant-garde art world of Paris and in the rise of a new mass-media culture.
