1976 World Surrealist Exhibition

The World Surrealist Exhibition was held at Gallery Black Swan in Chicago in 1976. As the name suggests, broader in scope than previous "international" exhibitions, it featured hundreds of works almost exclusively from contemporary participants in surrealism from many different countries.

Its catalogue, containing reproductions of selected works in the exhibition as well as a blueprint of the gallery, was entitled Marvelous Freedom/Vigilance of Desire.
