Open to the public on Saturday September 4 and until Sunday October 24, this new show presents works from more than fifteen countries and thirty-two artists. The exhibition includes the father of surrealism Salvador Dalí with an exceptional selection from the Argillet collection.

Other featured artists include: Australian neo-surrealist artist Gil Bruvel, Gary James McQueen, contemporary Chinese artists Zhang Xiao Gang, Yue Min Jun and Zao Wu Ki, as well as Japanese neo-pop artists Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara.

Synonymous with surrealism, the work of French surrealist Salvador Dalí both shocked viewers with his exploration of the psyche and paved the way for future artists. Continuing this tradition, the French neo-surrealist of Australian origin Gil Bruvel works across multiple disciplines and media. Also Australian, photographer Vee Speers captures a surreal dystopia while investigating our youth-obsessed society. Cultural movements within a collectivist society are explored through contemporary Chinese art. Artists such as Zhang Xiaogang and Yue Minjun question the status of the individual while Liu Bolin paints himself in places of historical discord. Neo-pop masters Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara embrace manga lore and the Superflat movement.
