From January 12 to May 8, 2016, The Palmer Museum of Art in University Park, Pennsylvania will run the art exhibit entitled “Consciously Surreal: Photography, the Uncanny, and the Body.” The show will focus entirely on the periphery of modern-day surrealism presented in a variety of ways.
Some of the major contributors of this surreal art show are Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Robert Heinecken, and David Teplica. These artists are quite known for their works in reconstructing and deconstructing the human form. They will be joined by photography artists Bernal Siegel and Jerry Uelsmann, who will create portraits and landscape images that are perceived surreal or extremely differently from the ordinary.
Aside from the art shows, a talk will be held at the exhibition gallery on January 22 at 12:10 pm, lead by Art history graduate student Keri Mongelluzzo. On the other hand, Associate Professor Jonathan Eburne and Program Development Coordinator Amy Dupain Vashaw will serve as the curators for a series of film presentations compiled to match the Consciously Surreal theme scheduled every Thursday from February 11 to February 25, 2016.
