Angels of Anarchy Exhibition

Today we visited the ‘Angels of Anarchy’ Exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery. This contained surrealist works in the themes of Portraits, Landscapes, Interiors, Still Life and Fantasy. Photography was used to express many of these themes, especially the portrait aspect of Surrealism. Traditionally portraits represented women as passive muses or erotic objects. The artists of this exhibition challenged this. These included Francesca Woodman, Lola Alvarez Bravo and Man Ray. Here is an overview of the exhibiton: http://www.manchestergalleries.org/angelsofanarchy/
