Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte was a master at “defamiliarizing the familiar,” a strategy also used to challenge notions of perception by exhibiting artist David Wallace Haskins, who counts Magritte as among his favorite and most inspiring artists. Stephanie D’Alessandro, curator of the acclaimed 2014 Magritte exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, will speak about Magritte’s uncanny ability to transform the everyday into indelible, dreamlike images.
