AIPAD Talks: The Subversive Eye: Surrealist Photography with David Raymond and Dr. William Jeffett

The exhibition's expansive consideration of Surrealism is a product of the discerning eye of David Raymond of Asheville, NC. The exhibition is curated by William Jeffett, Chief Curator at The Dalí Museum. It will be accompanied by a catalog with full-color reproductions of all the works in the exhibition, some well-known and others rarely seen. Contributors will include Hank Hine, William Jeffett, Dawn Ades and David Raymond.

Since he encountered the major exhibition catalog L’Amour fou: Photography and Surrealism (Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC) in 1985, Raymond has pushed the boundary of the definition of "the surreal,” working to expand the canon in his collecting practice. Since 2007, when over 160 works gathered by Raymond became part of the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, he has found that his passion for collecting has become even stronger. This will be the first exhibition in a decade to debut the fruits of his labor.
