After WWI artists and writers in the Surrealist movement sought to break with rationalism and unlock the powers of the unconscious mind. Their movement lasted until after WWII, influencing western thought and politics. Here in Xilitla, in the jungle of San Luis Potisí, works of two Surrealist artists can be found.

Yeah – it seems like something out of a movie, doesn’t it?
I love the colors of/in Xilitla. And, what a collection of big name artists with “roots” or connections there. Thanks for sharing these interesting exhibitions inside and outside. I wonder whether the jungle is taking over the surrealistic garden or if the foundation is trying to prevent that. I really liked the way you did this blog as well, with photos and captions.
Thanks! This was a Greg blog. He is so much more economical with words than me.
Tourism at Las Posas is huge. I think the town has an invested interest in keeping it in a “tourable” state – though there did seem to be some deterioration to the structures – which, of course, makes everything look even more interesting.
One of my goals in Mexico was to learn more about Mexican art and artist – this was an excellent place for that.
