In 1965, Penelope & Franklin Rosemont co-founded the Chicago Surrealist Group, following a trip to Paris where they met André Breton. Franklin Rosemont played an important role in popularizing the work of poet Breton. Rosemont was also a noted labour historian and publisher. The newly-formed Chicago Group combined their creativity with radical political activity, and staged a number of interesting events. Rosemont insisted that the organization of a surrealist exhibition could only be undertaken by surrealists themselves.
Much of the group’s work was published in Arsenal/Surrealist Subversions and has been republished in collections. Collection from Mel Gordon, associate Editor at The Drama Review. Item #63-2456
