“Surrealism. For me it was the most beautiful dream that embodies the pinnacle of youth.” – Marcel Duchamp

In Paris 1924, then 28-year-old poet Andre Breton, published his Surrealist Manifesto and sparked one of the largest 20th century art movements. Inspired by the laws of chance, randomness, dream, fantasy and myth, Surrealism’s influence has extended not just to literature and painting, but even to the film and advertising industries.

The exhibition showcases a total of 170 Surrealist paintings, sculptures, objects, sketches, photos and films and other related materials from the extensive collection of the Pompidou Center in Paris.
