Withdraw the words "melt", "limb", "hair", "sex" and "tired" from your vocabulary and you've got precious little left to say about Tate Modern's new show, Surrealism: desire unbound . This gargantuan sprawl of an exhibition offers a major historical survey of the Surrealist movement from the 1920s onwards, with emphasis on the erotic imagination.
Many of the classic pieces are here: Duchamp's Mona Lisa postcard with its scribbled moustache and goatee; Man Ray's long-lashed eye, paper-clipped to a metronome; Dal''s "Lobster Telephone"; Meret Oppenheim's furry teacup and saucer. There's also some violent and sexually explicit material (such as Masson's illustrations for the Marquis de Sade's works). This exhibition is emphatically unsuitable for children. Until January 1, 2002. Group tickets from 020 7887 8888. Website: www.tate.org.uksurrealism
