"Staging Surrealism" assesses what is perhaps the twentieth century's most influential movement by tracing its legacy in contemporary art. René Magritte, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst and Man Ray (as well as Surrealist predecessors or comrades such Eugène Atget and André Kertész) are presented alongside contemporary artists in a section titled Correspondences: A Dream Album that features dream journals by such filmmakers and artists as Isaac Julien, Tom Kalin and Kara Walker. Essays by curator Donna De Salvo and Surrealist scholar and translator Mary Ann Caws consider the impact of Surrealism on art and culture today.
