About The Event

The very first exhibition devoted to Surrealist photography was staged in Cleveland in 1979, and the subject now returns here in Forbidden Games. British photohistorian Ian Walker, a contributor to the show's catalogue, addresses the complex, sometimes contradictory views of Surrealist photography that have arisen in the intervening 35 years. He also examines the range of ways in which the Surrealists photographed the paramount Surrealist city, Paris, and the different methods through which those images were exhibited and published.
