British Surrealism & Other Realities: The Sherwin Collection, installed at mima 2008, Photograph Gilmar Ribeiro, g2

The exhibition will present key works from the outstanding collection of Dr Jeffrey Sherwin. Over many years, Dr Sherwin has built what is arguably the finest collection of British Surrealism in existence. The collection includes exceptional works by Eileen Agar, Roland Penrose, Henry Moore, Emmy Bridgwater and Conroy Maddox. Not only has he supplemented the collection with an unparalleled set of original manuscripts, photographs, posters, rare Surrealist volumes and curiosities, but he has also contextualised the Surrealist works with a broader collection of modern British art from Gaudier-Brzeska to Damien Hirst.
