Salvador Dalí once claimed “I don’t do drugs. I am drugs.” Whether the surrealist master used hallucinogenic drugs remains a debate for the ages, but you’re guaranteed to get a cultural contact high when viewing The Surrealists: Works from the Collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This profound gathering of 40 of the most celebrated Surrealist artists—also including Joan Miró, Man Ray and Max Ernst among others—explores the movement’s place in history through paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and prints, plus examples of the many art and literary publications central to the surrealist exchange.

Nov. 3-March 2.
