Alice in the Wonderland of Art

decoration22 June 2012|30 Sept. 2012

For almost 150 years Lewis Carroll's tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been fascinating children and adults alike, including Queen Victoria and Oscar Wilde. Now, for the first time, an exhibition is dedicated to Alice and the many different ways in which she has inspired and influenced visual artists: Alice in the Wonderland of Art shows around 200 works from 150 years of art history. Among the manifold paintings, sculptures, book illustrations, photographs, drawings, films and installations are artworks by Lewis Carroll himself (who also was a mathematics professor, photographer and art collector) as well as illustrations and documents relating to theatrical adaptations and movies and works by modern and contemporary artists such as Max Ernst, René Magritte, Salvador Dalí, Stephan Huber, Anna Gaskell, Kiki Smith and Pipilotti Rist.
