Gagosian is pleased to present Daydreams and Nightmares, a virtual exhibition of modern and contemporary works that engage with the genre of Surrealism. Today, Surrealism continues to fascinate and evolve as contemporary artists revisit its disruptive ideas. Daydreams and Nightmares considers the legacy of the original movement, and the ways in which its spirit of adventure and subversion of reality have progressed over the past hundred years to foster an ongoing dialogue between art and society.
Some of the featured artists employ innovative techniques to harness the unconscious, while others explore the “dream image” in representational painting. Other artists investigate alternative realities, uncanny visions, and mythical (or imagined) narratives.

A storyteller and researcher driven by the mutability of fact and the documentary potential of fiction, Taryn Simon directs our attention to systems of organization—bloodlines, circulating picture collections, mourning rituals, ceremonial flower arrangements—revealing the structures of power and authority hidden within. Working in photography, sculpture, text, sound, performance, and installation, she traces lineages of objects, families, nations, and histories.
