Man Ray | Lee Miller Partners in Surrealism

Rare photographs, paintings, sculpture and drawings tell the story of the artists' brief but intense association and reveal the nature of their creative partnership.

Opening June 11

From 1929 to 1932, Man Ray and Lee Miller -- two pivotal players in the Surrealism movement -- lived together in Paris, first as teacher and student and later as lovers. Their mercurial relationship resulted in some of the most powerful work of each artist's career, and helped shape the course of modern art and photography.

Don't miss opening day! Films, art and personal accounts enliven the discussion of Surrealism, Man Ray and Lee Miller. PEM Photography Curator Phillip Prodger introduces Man Ray's films. Lee Miller's son, Antony Penrose, offers insight into his mother's life and art in a critically acclaimed presentation. 

NOTE Films are for adults. Viewer discretion advised: nudity.
