Surreal Things is the first exhibition to explore the influence of Surrealism on the world of design - theatre, interiors, fashion, film, architecture and advertising. Alongside paintings by Magritte, Ernst and Dalí will be some of the most extraordinary objects of the 20th century, from Dalí’s Mae West Lips sofa and Lobster Telephone to Elsa Schiaparelli’s dramatic ‘Tear’ and ‘Skeleton’ dresses, and Meret Oppenheim’s Table with Bird’s Legs. With nearly 300 exhibits, Surreal Things will show how artists like Dalí engaged with design and how Surrealism became one of the most influential movements of the 20th century.
