Salvador Dali is an iconic figure in art history. By being eccentric and irrational he made creativity the center of his world. Everything in the creator surprised and amazed the audience: his expression, his revolutionary ideas and thoughts, his true love with Gala. But mostly that is why the artist became popular and had a lot of fans and followers. Nowadays, every new Salvador Dali exhibition increases the interest in the society: if you would like to see the exhibition we suggest you buy a ticket in advance.
A new exhibition “Salvador Dali. Magic Art” was opened at the Manege Central Exhibition Hall on January 28. The exhibition was organized by the Link of Times Foundation and the Fabergé Museum in partnership with the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation (Figueres) and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid). The curator Monce Ager, director of the Dali Museums, brought to Moscow over 180 works, many of which have not been shown before.
The exhibition allows you to find out how a strange Spanish boy became a recognized genius. The exposition shows the paintings that the artist had created throughout his life: from impressionist landscapes he made in his youth in the 1910s to his final abstract canvases from the 1980s. One of the significant works at the exhibition is the stereoscopic diptych “Dalí Seen from the Back Painting Gala from the Back Eternalized by Six Virtual Corneas Provisionally Reflected by Six Real Mirrors”. This piece of art represents the period when the artist introduced science to his painting, creating his famous optical illusions.
The exhibition also features a series of engravings illustrating Dante’s “Divine Comedy” and illustrations to his own book “50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship”.
But why is the exhibition called “Magic Art”? Painting has always been a magical art for Salvador Dali: the artist admired the technical perfection and the masters of the Renaissance. The viewer can see that Dali was influenced by them while creating his later works.
The exhibition also offers his guests an educational program: the lectures, which will help the viewer to understand the art of the painter, are organized on Thursdays. On the official website you can find a detailed schedule of films and workshops for children and adults.
The exhibition is opened to visitors from January 28 to March 25. The editors of Beautiful Lifestyle advise you to purchase tickets for exhibition online on the official website in order to avoid the queue.
