Strange Weather on Distant Shores

If any of the Shoreline’s small but discerning readership are in the vicinity of Reading, Pennsylvania over the next few weeks, they’ll doubtless want to check out Surrealism in 2012: Toward the World of the Fifth Sun, an exciting-looking event that runs from Jan 6th to Feb 19th at the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts. Read more about it here and here.

Meanwhile the major, heavy-on-the-big-names exhibition Surrealism in Paris continues until Jan 29th at Fondation Beyeler, Basel. I’m still trying to work out a way I might get to this. The exhibition website is well worth a look- I particularly liked this 1935 Man Ray portrait of Max Ernst:

I don’t think I’ve previously seen Ernst looking quite so birdlike- quite so much like Loplop, in other words.
