The exhibition Joseph Cornell and Surrealism in New York focuses on the work of Cornell, the American pioneer of collage, montage, and assemblage art, in the decades of the 1930s and the 1940s. These years span both Cornell’s emergence and maturation as an artist and the heyday of surrealism in the United States. Surrealism launched Cornell as an exhibiting artist. It was also the cultural milieu that shaped and molded him through the first half of his career.
