The Afro-Surrealism movement is not only a form of artistic expression—it is politically engaged and a means of self-assertion. In this talk organized by Surrey Art Gallery Association, Crystal Noir will discuss how she uses Afro-Surrealist symbols to draw the viewer into a world of hidden double meanings, layers, and dualities.
