Objects of Desire exhibition explores "what surrealism is and why it matters now" | Dezeen

Curator Kathryn Johnson explains the story behind surrealism and its impact on design in this video Dezeen produced for the Design Museum about its latest exhibition. Titled Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design 1924 - Today, the exhibition features almost 350 surrealist objects spanning fashion, furniture and film. The exhibition, which was curated by Johnson, explores the conception of the surrealist movement in the 1920s and the impact it has had on the design world ever since. It features some of the most recognised surrealist paintings and sculptures, including pieces by Salvador Dal, Man Ray and Leonora Carrington, as well as work from contemporary artists and designers such as Dior and Bjrk. "Surrealism was born out of the horrors of the first world war, in a period of conflict and uncertainty, and it was a creative response to that chaos," Johnson said in the video.
