I am conducting research on Surrealist Art, focusing on the works by Max Ernst and his Collages. Recently, I completed a research project on Max Ernst's painting Vox Angelica (Flute of Angel) (1943), and conducted research on how the images are displayed in the painting and what effect is generated by its composition with grid structure. I also analyzed it in the context of the New York art scene at the time when Ernst exiled himself in 1942. My present aim is to consider a relationship between Max Ernst's art and his exhibitions between the interwar period, including a significance of 'exhibition' in the surrealist art movement.
