Remember that the international exhibition of surrealism was a landmark in the history of the surrealist movement and beyond, in the history of exhibitions. Indeed it is iconic because it was intended to make the exhibition space a total work of art. It was during this event, bringing together more than 200 works by 60 artists from 14 countries, that was exhibited the famous installation of Dali ‘The rainy Taxi’, placed near the entrance, while the central hall was designed by Marcel Duchamp with a ceiling where hung 1200 coal bags.
