Explore Angels

Angels of Anarchy is the first major exhibition in Europe to explore the crucial role that women artists played in the surrealist art movement.

The exhibition features over 150 artworks, including paintings, photography, sculpture and surreal objects, created by three generations of artists from around the globe.

The 32 artists are some of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century, including Frida Kahlo, Lee Miller, Meret Oppenheim and Leonora Carrington. These were radical, revolutionary women whose work still inspires, and sometimes shocks,  today.

The exhibition is divided into five themes. Find out more about the exhibition themes by either following the link below or clicking on the images to the left.
