        A lecture given at Manchester Art Gallery as part of Angels of Anarchy: Women Artists and Surrealism on 1 October 2009. With Dr Alyce Mahon, Senior Lecturer in History 20th Century Art, University of Cambridge In this lecture, Dr Alyce Mahon explores the role of erotic desire in surrealism, and women surrealists’ provocative use of the sexual body to radically awaken the viewer to gender politics. Addressing a range of women surrealists, including Meret Oppenheim, Leonor Fini, Frida Kahlo and Mimi Parent, Mahon considers how these women both offered an alternative to the dominant modes of surrealist masculinity and paved the way for later, post 1960s, generations of feminist artists.
