Rene Magritte, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst and Man Ray (as well as Surrealist predecessors or comrades such Eugene Atget and Andre Kertesz) are presented alongside contemporary artists in a section titled Correspondences: A Dream Album that features dream journals by such filmmakers and artists as Isaac Julien, Tom Kalin and Kara Walker.
