The Surreal Worlds of Leonora Carrington Tuesday May 30th at the Bell    One of Britain’s most acclaimed esoteric artists, Leonora Carrington (1917- 2 011) was in the vanguard of Surrealist art. Her themes included feminism, ecology and the interconnectedness of everything; she had a fascination with myth and symbolism, including Tarot .   Carrington’s cousin Joanna Moorhead , author o f The Surreal Life of Leonora Carrington , takes us through her art, and the many places that inspired her across Britain, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the US, and finally Mexico, where the artist lived for more than 60 years.  This richly illustrated talk includes Carrington’s relationship with Max Ernst and her friendships with a host of other artists including Man Ray, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and André Breton.  Joanna’s new book, Surreal Spaces: The Life and Art of Leonora Carrington ,  is published by Thames & Hudson.
