The exhibition, curated by Laura Bartolomé, Lucia Moni and Francesca Villanti in collaboration with the Fundació Gala Salvador Dalí, focuses on the unique person of Salvador Dalí and his rare creative flair: he was a painter, draftsman, thinker, writer, lover of the sciences, catalyst of the avant-garde currents, illustrator, designer, filmmaker, set designer, he was an artist who was engaged in all fields of creation to go beyond the narrow scope of painting. He was a genius who assured an exceptional immortality to his own genius and artworks. Salvador Dalí can be indeed considered a character in the true sense of the word, the artist who has transformed himself into one of his most famous creations: through paintings, drawings, videos, photographs and magazines visitors will take a great journey in the universe of one of the most brilliant interpreters of the XX century of which the exhibition will unveil the relevance, the talent, the uniqueness.
The exhibition path includes Dalí’s first self-portraits, paintings and drawings dating back the 1920s and 1940s; his masterpieces of the end of the Sixties and Seventies (stereoscopic works that allow the public to see the painting in three dimensions), several photographs about the Catalan artist’s daily life including those of Philippe Halsman whose subject is Dalí’s famous mustache, then films, performances and frequent appearances of Dalí himself in the media (magazine covers or his participation as a guest in an American television competition).
An incredible journey to discover the other life of Salvador Dalí, the less known, essential to understand his incredible personality and enter a rare universe, complex and disturbing, which fascinates the public and invite everybody to dream, in the broadest sense of the word.
