Tour Rene Magritte at SFMOMA

Events // Tour Rene Magritte at SFMOMA

Oct 7 - Oct 7

Overview // Join us for a day trip to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to tour the exhibition René Magritte: The Fifth Season.

Widely known today for his surrealist declaration, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe," René Magritte (1898–1967) was one of the most intriguing painters associated with Surrealism, but he did not fully find his voice until after breaking ties with the movement. This exhibition, the first to look exclusively at Magritte’s late career, examines his most important bodies of work from the 1940s through the 1960s, and shows how they marked a fundamental shift in painting from Modernism to our own time.

Featuring more than 70 artworks in nine immersive, thematic galleries, René Magritte: The Fifth Season explores how Magritte balanced irony and conviction, philosophy and fantasy, to illuminate the gaps between what we see and what we know. Together, the works reveal Magritte as an artist acutely attuned to the paradoxes at work within reality, and an enduring champion of the role of mystery in life and art.

In addition to touring the works of Magritte, travelers will also have access to SFMOMA's superb permanent collection on view, which includes artworks by Jasper Johns, Ed Ruscha, Robert Rauschenberg, Eleanor Antin, and many more. Visit SFMOMA's website and explore the museum's permanent collection before the trip!

Travelers will also receive a lunch voucher for SFMOMA's Café 5.
