'Surrealism: The Poetry of Dreams' is a landmark exhibition of surrealist works from the Musée national d'art moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris. It presents a historical overview of Surrealism, charting its evolution from Dada experiments in painting, photography and film, through the metaphysical questioning and exploration of the subconscious in the paintings of Giorgio De Chirico and Max Ernst; to the readymade objects of Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray's photographs.
