Networks, Museums and Collections

Surrealism in the United States

The conference “Networks, Museums and Collections. Surrealism in the United States” will bring the complex networks that fostered and sustained Surrealism in North America into academic focus. Who – collectors, critics, dealers, galleries, and other types of mediating agents – supported the artists in the Surrealist orbit, in what ways and why? What more
can be learned about high profile collectors such as the de Menils in Houston or Peggy Guggenheim in New York?

The conference is a key component of the research project
“Le surréalisme et l’argent. Galeries, collectionneurs et médiateurs”
in cooperation with the labex arts H2H, which explores to
 what extent the global success of Surrealism in the 20th century
 was due to the roles and factors played by private collectors,
 museums, exhibitions, art collectors as well as the commercial
 strategies of artists.
