Field Trip 3 – Edinburgh And The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

For this week’s episode Alice and Amy finally went on their ‘sister trip’ up to Edinburgh, where they checked out the ‘Beyond Realism | Dada and Surrealism‘ exhibition at The National Scottish Museum Of Modern Art. We do love a bit of surrealism and it was great finding some familliar artists work and learning about some new ones (well, new to us because surrealism is an old movement).
