Few artists of the 20th century were able to convey the irrationality of World War I more inventively than Max Ernst. Through new techniques such as frottage (rubbings) and key contributions to the languages of Dadaism and Surrealism, Ernst articulated a unique vision of the world that addressed the destruction ushered in by 20th-century warfare. Join us in exploring the richness of his long career with stunning examples drawn from MoMA's collection.

This session is led by Tamara Kostianovsky.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.
