The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art presents Other Points of View, a survey exhibition that examines the mid-twentieth-century artistic scene in the Americas through the lens of the short-lived yet influential View publication, which is largely credited with bringing Surrealism to the United States. Through archival magazine issues, art and writings, and associated material, the exhibition spotlights the dynamic creative output published during the magazine’s seven year run between 1940 and 1947. View featured essays by the era’s top minds, including Albert Camus, Joseph Cornell, and Andre Breton, many of whom brought progressive European ideas to the United States in the onset of World War II, alongside artworks by contemporary painters, sculptors and the like.

Other Points of View recontextualizes by canonical modernists, including Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and Georgia O’Keeffe, all of whom designed cover art and interior images. The exhibition also reasserts the queerness of American modernism through reintroducing the work of gay and lesbian artists and critics, including the founders of View, partners Charles Henri Ford and Parker Tyler, that have largely disappeared from history. In bringing together over 100 works from movements ranging from surrealism to magical realism, the show explores how the publication cultivated alternative understandings of both “American” and “modernism.”
