Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Arts minister Rachel Nolan have announced a major new exhibition of Dali, Magritte, Miró, Man Ray and other surrealists.

Surrealism: The Poetry of Dreams opens in June and showcases Europe's most important and extensive collection of surrealist works, from the Musée national d'art moderne at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

‘The Centre Pompidou’s collection captures the diversity, experimentation and excitement of Paris which was the epicentre of Surrealism in Europe', said Queensland Art Gallery director Tony Ellwood.

‘Artists gravitated there from all over Europe to create an unparalleled avant-garde scene in which painters, sculptors, filmmakers, scientists, dancers and poets all collaborated'.
