What began as a student-teacher relationship, became a love story between two artists who could not live with or without each other. Together they made the most extraordinary art that helped shape the course of modernism. Their collaboration resulted in technical innovations such as the effect as the e effect of solarization and the coalescene of the surrealist idiom. Combining photographs, paintings, sculpture and drawings, the exhibition tells the story of Miller and Ray in Paris. This is the first time that they will be exhibited together.
