In one spectacularly far-reaching exhibition, ranging from ancient artifacts to the art of today, we explore the timeless and global phenomenon of the supernatural. Artists have access to worlds beyond the one we know through visions, dreams and fantasies that summon a celestial realm of spirits, deities, monsters and extra-sensory phenomena. The mysteries of Olmec stargazer sculptures and Shang dynasty chimeras are lost in time. For the Renaissance masters Durer and Rembrandt, the metaphysical becomes real in images of the apocalypse and alchemy. The Surrealists, from Dali and de Chirico to Tanguy and Magritte, lived in a dream world of myths and the unconscious while their heirs, including Pollock and Motherwell as well as artists of our time such as Rona Pondick Christopher Winter, Inka Essenhigh, Michaël Borremans and Robert Gober, wield their own magic. Join us on a wild trip into the next dimension with some of the greatest artists in history as our guides.
