The Surrealist scenes captured in René Magritte's paintings compel audiences today as much as they did at the dawn of the 20th century. Posing thought-provoking questions in exceptionally well-worked compositions, Magritte's deep pondering of the meaning of art and its role in modern culture has been the font of inspiration for generations that followed him.
It is this inspiration that is the root of the exhibition "Magritte, Broodthaers & Contemporary Art", on view at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium through 18 February 2018. Celebrating the particularly strong connection between Magritte's oeuvre and the work of Marcel Broodthaers, this display also offers a survey of some of the biggest names in contemporary art, including Jasper Johns, Ed Ruscha, and George Condo.
