It's a stone-cold truth: Your dreams are fascinating to you and you alone. Nobody wants to hear you stumble through your hazy recollection of what happened while your body was in REM state. Ah, but if you can translate the nature of your dream into something visual or poetic, then people want to know what went on in your subconscious. Dreamscapes, the new exhibition at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts (3716 Washington Boulevard; 314-754-1850 or www.pulitzerarts.org), features works of art that either replicate the otherworldly nature of dreams or explore the mechanics of the dream state. René Magritte's painting Le monde invisible does the former, depicting the nighttime view from a study window, only the view is partially obscured by a boulder in front of the window. Max Klinger's Glove Cycle shows nightmarish renditions of human fears, predating Jung's theories of dream symbolism, while Janet Cardiff's installation (a telephone located deep within the Pulitzer) actually shares the dream itself, as Cardiff recounts the elements of the dream to whoever picks up the receiver. Dreamscapes opens with a free public reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, February 11. The work remains on display through Saturday, August 13, and the museum is open on Wednesday and Saturday. Admission is free.
Fri., Feb. 11; Wednesdays, Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 11. Continues through Aug. 13, 2011
