Nahmad Projects is pleased to present NIGHT | Max Ernst and Yves Tanguy with Urs Fischer. Generating a discourse between the contemporary artist’s universe and the legacy of two Surrealist masters, the exhibition includes paintings by Max Ernst (1891-1976) and Yves Tanguy (1900-1955) alongside the debut of a new wallpaper installation by Urs Fischer (b. 1973).
NIGHT is the second chapter of a two-part project, with the ﬁrst half titled SUPERUNKNOWN which took place at Nahmad Contemporary, New York, in September – November 2020. This ﬁrst exhibition presented Ernst and Tanguy alongside an urban environment ﬁlled with foreboding for the future, a reﬂection on our changing society and its dialogue with the historical context of Ernst and Tanguy’s 1920s and 1930s works.
This new environment turns its focus inwards, exploring the metamorphosis of consciousness.
