JUN 04 Gallery Talk: Meret Oppenheim

Find your new favorite work of art!

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA’s collection with museum staff.

This week, Digital Media Specialist Laura Hoffman discusses selections from special exhibition Meret Oppenheim: Tender Friendships. Through close looking and guided inquiry, participants will examine works that attest to the artist’s interest in the natural world and her unparalleled imagination.


Meret Oppenheim: Tender Friendships presents more than 20 artworks and archival papers by Swiss Surrealist Meret Oppenheim (1913–1985). Illuminated through her musings, books of poetry and prints, and original letters to artists and friends, this exhibition explores Oppenheim’s relationships and personality.
