Yes. Magic Trackpad uses the same Trackpad Preferences found in System Preferences and supports "Four Fingers" swiping Up/Down for Exposé and Left/Right to Switch Applications.

The same gestures that work on the MacBook Pro work on this, so a 4 finger swipe up and down can activate Expose.

From the Magic Trackpad's page:
"The entire surface of Magic Trackpad is one large button, so you can click and double-click anywhere. Magic Trackpad also supports a full set of gestures, including two-finger scrolling, pinching to zoom, rotating with your fingertips, three-finger swiping, and activating Exposé or switching between applications with four fingers."

Swipe downward on the trackpad with four fingers.

You can use a four-finger upwards or downwards drag gesture to trigger Exposé, as per current MacBook trackpads. This and other multitouch gestures are configurable via System Preferences.

"Hot corners" under the Exposed and Spaces settings in System Preferences can be configured to activate expose. If you drag the mouse the a certain corner of your screen, expose will activate showing you all of your open windows (or whatever function you choose to assign that corner). To go back to you were after using expose, simply move your mouse to that same corner.
Each corner can be assigned a different function including sleep, show desktop, show all window, show applications windows... etc.
