Echoing the Dali exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco’s cultural department has organised a photographic exhibition at the Salle du Quai Antoine I, highlighting the links between surrealism and contemporary photography.

The public will be able to discover over 100 works by six artists: Thierry Fontaine, Agnes Geoffray, Philippe Durand, Sandrine Esther Elberg, Michel François and Boris Mikhailov.

Each of the photographers appropriates in his own way an artistic trend of more than a century: the mistrust with regard to any form of realism, the superposition of images, the unusual framing or the photomontages, the change of scale, close-up vision revealing incongruous details or creating all kinds of imaginary objects.

The visitor is immersed in a universe where the imagination is constantly solicited.

The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 1pm to 7pm. Admission is free.
