The Surreal Objects Exhibition, showing three dimensional works from Dalí to Man Ray, will be held at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt from February 11 until May 29.

This is the first, wide-ranging exhibition to focus exclusively on the Surrealists’ three-dimensional works – about 150 of them in all. From today’s perspective, many of them seem surprisingly fresh and contemporary, not historical artefacts at all. The selection presents artists of the surrealist period from 1925–1945, including familiar names such as Duchamp, Magritte, Dalí, Picasso and Miró, but also many other artists whose striking works are still to be discovered by the general public.

Date: February 11th – May 29th, 2011
Open: Tue, Fri-Sun 10:00-19:00 / Wed-Thu 10:00-22:00 (Closed on Monday)
Place: Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
Address: Romerberg D-60311 Frankfurt
Entrance Fee: 8 EUR / Reduced 6 EUR
Tel: +49 69 29 98 82 0
