The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg presents Dali & Film, the first exhibition examining the profound relationship between the paintings and films of Salvador Dali (1904-1989). The exhibition reveals how Dali combined his skills in painting with the new and exciting possibilities of the moving image to define a new art.
Encounter Dali in depth through a selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection displayed with a focus on the hidden details. Seven works will receive a closer examination for Dali's particular blend of personal interpretation. Assisted by dynamic visual aids and illustrated panels, the paintings are interpreted section-by-section to analyze the dreams, desires and memories that inspired the work.
Curated by Joan Kropf, Curator of the Collection.

The exhibition presents Spanish master paintings alongside works by Dali from the Museum's permanent collection, demonstrating the importance of the incorporation of elements from Baroque painting into Dali's approach to painting and its pictorial language. Dali made frequent reference in his writings and even in the titles of his work to Baroque masters, which set himself up as a modern equivalent to artists such as Velázquez.
A chronological exhibition of oil paintings, drawings, watercolors and objet from the Museum's permanent collection cast against interpretive material including photographs, text and graphics showing the changing context - personal life and cultural times - in which Dali lived and created.
If the 20th century was tumultuous – in its scientific and medical discoveries, its wars, annihilations, and migrations – it was equally dynamic in its art. The ways in which art engages the world was in this period as varied and vehement as our history.
