Surrealism: The Conjured Life will present over 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs; together they will illustrate and celebrate the core elements and identity of the surrealism movement at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago beginning November 21. The exhibition will feature the works of major artists like René Magritte, Paul Delvaux, Cindy Sherman, Max Ernst, Jeff Koons and many more. The inspired collection will offer glimpses into worlds that are strange, often magical, and sometimes even disturbing.
