A Surreal Archive: Celebrating the Young-Mallin Collection

October 30, 2018–April 9, 2019
This installation highlights the Young-Mallin Archive, a treasure trove of information related to the Surrealist milieu in New York from the late 1930s to the early 1950s. Judith Young-Mallin (American, born 1937) is an accomplished art collector, cultural historian, and author who developed personal friendships with many of the movement’s artists. Her research files, interviews, correspondence, and photographs offer a fascinating window into this bohemian community.
