The Magritte Machine
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid
October 27, 2020 – February 28, 2021

The exhibition The Magritte Machine at the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza is the first retrospective on René Magritte (1898-1967) to be held in Madrid since the event organised by the Fundación Juan March in 1989. After its Madrid showing it will travel to the CaixaForum in Barcelona.

The exhibition’s title refers to its focus on the systematic element present in the work of this great Surrealist painter, who repeatedly and obsessively returned to his major themes, albeit with unexpected variations: words and images, figure and background, the painting and the mirror, animal camouflage, alteration of scale, and finally the face and the mask.

Curated by Guillermo Solana, the museum’s artistic director, the exhibition brings together 70 works, including paintings and works on paper, together with a selection of photographs and films.
