Magritte

lives! Fifty years af­ter the great Bel­gian sur­real artist died, this ex­hi­bi­tion shows that he is still very much present to­day. His in­flu­ence can be seen in the work of many con­tem­po­rary artists: from Ge­orge Condo to Gavin Turk, from Sean Lan­ders to David Alt­mejd. Magritte’s work con­sti­tutes a cru­cial ref­er­ence for any artist who in­tends to re­flect on the very pro­duc­tion of an image or trans­po­si­tion of some­thing real as a like­ness.
