The Menil Collection will present Meret Oppenheim: "My Exhibition," the first major transatlantic retrospective of the Swiss artist, and the first in the U.S. in more than 25 years. The exhibition will encompass the work Oppenheim created throughout her five-decade-long career. The show is co-organized by the Menil; MoMA, New York; and the Kunstmuseum Bern.

Over the course of 50 years, Meret Oppenheim (1913–1985) produced witty, unconventional bodies of work that remain largely unknown in the U.S. From uncanny object constructions, geometric abstractions, and painted narratives to jewelry designs, public sculpture commissions, and poetry, her diverse oeuvre is united by the singularity and force of her creative vision. Oppenheim’s thematic interests were equally diverse, ranging from the natural world and mythology to gender and selfhood. Her practice defies neat categorizations of style, medium, and historical movement.
