The comprehensive exhibition Surrealism will provide visitors with an opportunity to follow Surrealist trends in Polish art of the twentieth century. Its main premise will be to abandon the orthodox way of thinking about Surrealism as a historical movement confined within a specific time frame and to treat it instead as a global, inclusive and diverse phenomenon. The narrative will begin with works from the interwar period, and end with pieces by artists tied to the international movement called Phases established in the 1950s. Historical art will be juxtaposed with works by contemporary artists. The exhibition will feature typical Surrealist techniques such as decalcomania and Surrealist objects. A large collection of Surrealist photography will also be shown.

Apart from works from the NMW’s own collection, we will also display pieces loaned from other Polish museums, such as the National Museum in Wrocław, the Museum of Art in Łódź, the National Museum in Kraków, the Museum of Photography in Kraków and the Tatra Museum in Zakopane, and international museums such as Paris’s Centre Georges Pompidou, London’s Tate Modern, Stockholm’s Moderna Museet, Madrid’s Museo Reina Sofía and Prague’s Národní galerie.
