In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of the first volume of Miguel Cervantes' Don Quixote de la Mancha, The Dali Museum presents an exhibition featuring Dali's illustrations of this classic work of literature.
This exhibition organizes Dali's work into four persistent categories of obsession: Land (the landscape of Catalonia); Myth (both classical myths and the highly personalized mythology Dali constructs); Perception (the elasticity of reality and vision and demonstrated by optical illusions and double images); and God (themes of theism [Catholicism] and atheism). It reveals a mind laden with traditions yet heroically striving to demonstrate what else the world might be.
Dali & Mass Culture is the only American showing of a landmark international exhibition presenting over two hundred and seventy Salvador Dali works in film, fashion, painting, photography, plus images from Dali's Surreal World's Fair fun house and the first ever showing of Dali's paintings for Disney. Most of the exhibit works will be seen here for the first time — only nine paintings from Museum's permanent collection. The Dali/Disney collaboration Destino, an animated short film, is shown daily during the entire run of the exhibition.
This centenary exhibition is a retrospective of the permanent collection. The exhibit outlines Dali's career from the formative years 1917-1918, his notable Surrealist period 1919-1940, and his later works from 1941-1970. The exhibition features the multifaceted aspects of the artist's work, showcasing the extensive and varied material the Museum owns in a variety of media.
Curated by Joan Kropf, Dirk Armstrong and Kelly Reynolds.
In 1935 Dali wrote of painting, as "instantaneous color photography done by hand..." For him painting aspired to photography, with the technique so refined that it erased the artist's hand. If Dali moved from painting towards photography, so Fontcuberta has moved from photography towards painting. In doing so has questioned the truth-function of photography, asserting its artistic role.
Installation show designed specifically for the Dali Museum and responding to the Museum's collection by the Barcelona-based Catalan photographer. Fontcuberta's work questions the notion of "truth" as constructed by the photographic medium, particularly in the context of the digital age when the already fragile "reality" can be so easily manipulated.
