Surrealist Art at Te Papa

Surrealist Art at Te Papa: interview with curator Lizzie Bisley

The Te Papa Surrealist exhibition is now open and affords visitors the (ultra-rare) chance to see 180 surrealist masterpieces from Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. The exhibition includes sculpture, furniture, paintings, graphic design, prints, and photography.

As a special accompaniment for this exceptional exhibition, we recently had the pleasure of interviewing its curator Lizzie Bisley (Curator Modern Art at Te Papa) in conjunction with the Caffeine and Aspirin arts and entertainment review show on Radioactive FM.

Below is the podcast of that interview for your enjoyment:

The Te Papa’s Surrealist exhibition runs until 31 October in Te Papa’s gallery— (Please note, charges apply.)

This exhibition features major works by all key surrealist artists such as Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Marcel Duchamp, Leonora Carrington, and Man Ray.
