Surrealist exhibition opens in Buda

A large-scale exhibition presenting the Surrealist movement in nearly 120 paintings, graphic designs, sculptures, photographs, films and documents opened at the Hungarian National Gallery in Budapest on Thursday.

Culture state secretary Péter Fekete noted at the opening ceremony that the exhibition features works by Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, René Magritte, Pablo Picasso and sculptor Alberto Giacometti.

Didier Ottinger, deputy director of the Pompidou Centre in Paris, a curator of the exhibition, said Surrealism is the only artistic movement to have spread across the world which joins high culture to mass culture.

The exhibition jointly hosted with the Pompidou Centre is open at the National Gallery until October 20.
