The exhibition pays tribute to one of the most complex and prolific great figures in 20th century art, the great surrealist artist, Salvador Dali (1904-1989).
This important retrospective presents known and unknown works for the public's appreciation. Among the masterpieces exhibited, visitors will rediscover some of the greatest iconic works, including the artist's most famous picture, The Persistence of Memory, more commonly called Melting Watches. This exceptional loan from MoMA joins a selection of major works brought together for this retrospective thanks to a close collaboration with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, and a joint contribution from the Fundació Dalí in Figueres and the Dali Museum in Saint Petersburg (Florida).
Dali liked to blend art and science. This great media manipulator considered art a global act of communication. Dalí questioned in all its facets, the figure (persona) of the artist in the face of tradition and the world.
