Museum Trustees to Attend Ceremony Barcelona, Spain, June 2, 2014

St. Petersburg, FL – (May 5, 2014) – The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida has received the prestigious 2014 “National Prize of Culture” by the Catalan National Council of Culture and the Arts (CoNCA), in recognition of the Museum’s contribution to Catalan culture. This award is considered the most important distinction in this field. It is the first time the award has been presented to a foreign institution. The awards ceremony will take in Barcelona, Spain on Monday, June 2nd at 7:30 pm.

The ceremony will be led by Artur Mas, President of the Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia), and will take place at the Josip Maria de Sagarra Theatre in Santa Coloma de Gramenet. Representing The Dali will be the Museum’s Honorary Trustee for Life, Pascual Pesudo Castillo and Curator of the Dali Museum’s Special Exhibitions Dr. William Jeffett. As a teen, Pascual Pesudo was acquainted with Salvador Dali and later became a dear friend of Reynolds and Eleanor Morse, the founders of The Dalí Museum. William Jeffett has the distinction of bringing to America exhibitions of leading Catalan avant-garde artists.

CoNCA launched in March 2009 in response to long-term demand by the cultural sector to renew and expand policies and funding for creative works. The National Prize of Culture stresses creativity as the true symbol of a country with a cultural dynamism that is a part of its historic identity. In Catalonia, culture and civil society are considered critical elements of the past, present, and future.

Dr. Hank Hine, executive director of The Dali noted, “We are gratified to receive this award recognizing the positive contributions of our Museum to bring to global and American audiences new perspectives on the work of this artist who stirs the imagination and liberates the spirit.” The Museum’s mission is centered on educating the public about the significant contributions of Dali to the world of art and culture.

Dr. William Jeffett, Chief Curator of Special Exhibitions at The Dali added “We seek to support and help strengthen Catalan culture in an international context through the study and exhibition of Salvador Dali and his inheritance.”

INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION PROJECTS VISITORS’ FACES INTO DALI’S FAMOUS PAINTING
Opens Saturday, June 14, 2014 and runs through Sunday, October 12, 2014

St. Petersburg, FL (May 5, 2014) – The Dali Museum debuts a sensational optical and intellectual experience delving into the world of double images and illusions. “Marvels of Illusion” will open to the public Saturday, June 14, 2014 at 10am. Curated by Joan Kropf, the exhibit showcases a variety of Dalí paintings, prints and sculpture; a special work from the 16th Century from the School of Arcimboldo, on loan from the Ringling Museum; and rich explanatory material.

A centerpiece of the Marvels of Illusion exhibit is an interactive installation titled “Gala Contemplating You” which places visitors inside one of Dali’s most famous paintings. The installation is inspired by Dali’s 1976 painting “Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea Which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln (Homage to Rothko),” which proved that 121 pixels could identify a particular human face. A corresponding web application allows virtual visitors from around the globe to submit their photos and become part of the experience as well.

For portions of this exhibition, The Dali Museum has teamed up with the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Tampa that will also be introducing a complementary exhibit this summer. The two museums will have reciprocal displays and will offer special discounts to those who visit both museums. “Art and science are considered two different disciplines, but Dalí merged the two in fascinating ways. We’re doing the same by inviting guests to an art museum to experience science, and to a science museum to experience art.” said Dr. Hank Hine, Executive Director of The Dalí.

The exhibit promises to entertain and fascinate people of all ages – visitors will not only come to the Museum, they will become part of it. Special pricing for children we be offered. The Dalí will present a variety of educational and interactive events and activities related to this exhibit throughout the summer both at The Dalí Museum and at MOSI.

About The Dalí Museum
The Dali Museum, located in the heart of beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, is home to an unparalleled collection of Salvador Dali art, featuring more than 2,000 works by the renowned and influential 20th century Spanish artist.

The building is itself a work of art, featuring 1,062 triangular-shaped glass panels – the only structure of its kind in North America.

PICASSO / DALI
DALI / PICASSO

OPENING NOVEMBER 8, 2014 IN ST. PETERSBURG, FL

New York City, New York (March 20, 2014) – Dali Museum Director Hank Hine and Museu Picasso, Barcelona Director Bernardo Laniado-Romero announced their co-organization of the international exhibition “Picasso / Dali, Dali / Picasso.” This landmark exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dali, opens to the public at The Dali Museum on Saturday, November 8, 2014 and runs through February 16, 2015. The exhibit will then travel to the Museu Picasso for exhibition from March 19, 2015 until June 28, 2015.

The exhibition “Picasso / Dali, Dali / Picasso” promises to be an international blockbuster for both museums as it will feature rarely loaned works from more than 25 international art museums and private collections worldwide pairing works of these leading artists of our era. Dozens of works – with a focus on paintings, and also featuring drawings, prints and sculpture – will be on display exclusively at The Dali Museum St. Petersburg and the Museu Picasso, Barcelona.

“This Picasso exhibition offers the possibility of rereading the relationship between two key figures of twentieth-century art and exploring new interpretations of the period in which their lives and works intersected,” explained Dali Museum Director Dr. Hank Hine. “Both of our permanent collections are made up of works by arguably the two most influential 20th century Spanish artists. We are honored to collaborate with Barcelona’s Museu Picasso and our enduring partners at the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dali.”

The Dali Museum will host a variety of fundraising events and private viewings starting November 1st and leading up to the public grand opening in St. Petersburg, FL on Saturday, November 8th at 10am.

“Surprisingly, this is a part of history that has not been told before. As this exhibition will show, their fertile rapport produced some outstanding and crucial artworks for modern times.” said Museu Picasso’s Director Bernardo Laniado-Romero.

This will be the second “blockbuster” exhibit in The Dali Museum building, following the current Andy Warhol exhibit which is setting the tone for record visitation. Dali Museum Marketing Director Kathy Greif commented that “Visitation during the Warhol show’s opening month was up more than 40% vs the same period last year. We anticipate the Picasso show will draw an even larger crowd during its three-month run.”

The Dali Museum opened in 1982 and began with the permanent collection of Reynolds and Eleanor Morse, individual collectors. The initial holdings of the Museu Picasso, which opened in 1963, were donated by Picasso’s life-long friend and secretary Jaime Sabartés; later the artist himself would increase considerably its collection.

Chronological Exhibit Summary
In the spring of 1926, Dali visited Picasso’s studio on his first trip to Paris and saw the works Picasso was preparing for his summer exhibition at Paul Rosenberg. After returning to Spain, Dali set to work on an important group of paintings which reflected this artistic encounter and marked a transition to artistic maturity.

In 1929 both Dali and Picasso participated in the project of the Surrealists to bring the disruptive and creative power of dream images into their works. In 1936 Dali and Picasso responded simultaneously to the horrors of civil war in Spain with powerful works dramatizing the anguish of human conflict.

In the 1940s, Dali and Picasso began to define diverging political affinities, one to the left and one to the right. Their art converged in an engagement with the great art of the past as they dealt with the history of art’s grandest aspirations and their own yearning for artistic sovereignty in this era.

About The Dali Museum
The Dali Museum, located in the heart of beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, is home to an unparalleled collection of Salvador Dali art, featuring more than 2,000 works comprising nearly 100 oil paintings; over 100 watercolors and drawings; and 1,300 prints, photographs, sculptures and objets d’art.

The building is itself a work of art, featuring 1,062 triangular-shaped glass panels – the only structure of its kind in North America. Nicknamed the Enigma, it provides an unprecedented view of St. Petersburg’s picturesque waterfront. The museum has attracted the world’s attention, and among the other distinguished awards it has received, it was listed on AOL Travel News as “one of the top buildings to see in your lifetime.”

The Dali Museum is located at One Dali Boulevard, St. Petersburg, Florida 33701. For additional information contact 727-823-3767 or go to TheDali.org.

About the Museu Picasso
The Museu Picasso is perhaps the most visible sign of the artist’s emotional attachment to Barcelona. The collection which has grown up to 4,251 works owes its singular character to the generosity of countless benefactors; it is not fortuitous that many of these donors, besides Picasso himself, were his family and friends.

Picasso’s museum in Barcelona is the place of reference where to explore the artist’s formative years and understand some of the experimentation that was integral in the development of his oeuvre. In addition, enormously significant are the 57 paintings that shape his personal interpretation of Velázquez’s Las Meninas. This highly unique collection is housed in a series of five gothic palaces in the midst of the Born, one of the historic neighborhoods in Barcelona, Spain.

THE DALÍ OFFERS “A CAN FOR A CLASSIC” SPRING CULT CLASSIC MOVIE NIGHT + SOUP CAN DRIVE
TUESDAY, MARCH 11, 6:30-10PM

Andy Warhol-inspired Festivities Offered in the Museum’s Avant-garden
Public invited for free with soup can donation to local Salvation Army

The Dali Museum (St. Petersburg, FL) will offer a “spring preview” of its popular Cult Classic summer
movie series on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 from 6:30 to 10pm. Visitors can donate a can of soup – an
homage to Andy Warhol during the museum’s popular special Warhol exhibit – or make a $5 donation
and enjoy free admission to the screening of “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” held
outside in the Museum’s Avant-Garden. The food and cash donations will benefit the St. Petersburg
Salvation Army.

“The Salvation Army is excited and looking forward to partnering with The Dali Museum,” according to
St. Petersburg Salvation Army Area Commander, Major Tim Gilliam. “Having fun downtown with friends
and celebrating an artist like Andy Warhol, but also remembering those around us who are less
fortunate by bringing a can of soup or donating $5 for The Salvation Army’s food pantry sounds like a
great night to me.”

The event will be held in the picturesque setting of The Dali’s Avant-garden on the downtown
waterfront. Doors will open at 6:30 pm with Warhol-inspired music providing the background. Guests
may bring a chair or blanket for seating and enjoy food and beverages from popular area food trucks
plus a cash bar.

The Austin Powers film is the first in the popular series that rapidly became a cult classic and features a
scene between Austin Powers and Andy Warhol.

The Dali’s new Warhol exhibit prompted this soup can-drive. Dali Museum Director Dr. Hank Hine noted
“Warhol is well-known for his pop-art renditions of Campbell’s soup cans. We felt a soup-can drive was a
great way to pay tribute to that image and support another local non-profit organization at the same
time.”

SAN FRANCISCO (January 20, 2014)—What if surrealist artist Salvador Dali created an app? How could the app capture contradictory conditions between the real and the subconscious?

The Staring Contest app does just that by turning a two-person game into a digital one that gives users only the illusion of having an actual opponent.

The app is a joint effort between The Dali Museum and advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

Through the Staring Contest app, players pick their battles against Dali himself and other felicitous characters, such as a proxy for Andy Warhol and other surprise visitors yet to come, in celebration of the launch of The Dali Museum’s new Warhol exhibit. The punch line is that these opponents are all still images, only showing movement in unexpected distractions like a sly wiggle of Dali’s moustache.

“You think you can outstare Salvador Dali or a soup can? This fascinating app actually reminds you of The Dali Museum’s Warhol exhibition that just opened every time you pull it out. It’s a great cause and a hilarious solution, I think,” said Jeff Goodby, co-chairman and co-founder of Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

The Staring Contest app is launching now in part to promote the exhibit Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality., which considers Warhol’s little-commented-on engagement with other artists through his own painting, how he constructed an approach to his image in terms of celebrity and fame, and his treatment of painting and image in terms of human mortality. The exhibit runs from January 18 to April 27, 2014.

“We’re always looking for ways to engage museum visitors and believe this app will really connect with our audience. Everything we do here at The Dali Museum is intended to reflect or in some cases magnify the works and personality of Dali himself. As a barometer, we speculate whether Dali would like what we’re doing, and the Staring Contest app is one I’m confident he would enjoy,” said Hank Hine, executive director of The Dali Museum.

The app complements The Dali Museum’s new cross-platform advertising campaign – which highlights the Warhol exhibit – and will carry its own mini marketing campaign including a :30 promo video online and a two hour promo video spoof on the unbeatable contest. Mirror decals (“You vs. You”) will also be displayed on The Museum’s bathroom mirrors.

Goodby Silverstein & Partners and The Dali Museum had worked together before, creating the award-winning Hipstamatic app, which made surrealist overlays on photos taken through the app.

OPENS SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 2014 – APRIL 27, 2014

St. Petersburg, FL – (November 7, 2013) – The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida announces the debut of “Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality.” which will open Saturday, January 18, 2014 to the public and run through April 27, 2014.

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1928, Andy Warhol was one of the American artists most influenced by the legacy and model of Salvador Dali. In the 1950s-70s, both Warhol and Dali were highly visible in the New York art world. This was the period when Warhol was most productive and where he gained the most notoriety.

“Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality.” explores how Warhol learned from Dali’s public visibility and was equally attuned to the images derived from mass culture. “Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality.” considers Warhol’s little commented on engagement with other artists through his own painting, how he constructed an approach to the image in terms of celebrity and fame, and finally his treatment of painting and image in terms of human mortality.

The exhibit will include approximately 35 paintings, 20 drawings, 50 photographs and a selection of Warhol films, including screen tests. Works are on loan from The Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. The Warhol and The Dali museums are two of the largest and most renowned single-artist cultural destinations in the country.

“Our new exhibit will feature an important selection of works from Andy Warhol, one of the world’s most well-known artists,” announced The Dali Museum’s Executive Director Dr. Hank Hine. “It’s important for The Dali to present works from other artists, especially those that relate to Salvador Dali, to highlight different perspectives while showing their unique connections. Working directly with The Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh allowed us to collaborate and select specific works that will show Warhol’s impact on the art scene through his synthesizing of different media.”

The Warhol Museum opened in 1994 in Pittsburgh, Andy Warhol’s birthplace. Seven floors house Warhol’s paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, films and screen tests, as well as books and other archives.
“What is unusual is the mix of materials including archival photographs depicting Warhol in the 1950s. You will see both photos of and by Warhol. There are portraits of dozens of artists and celebrities that Warhol worked with,” explained The Dali’s Special Exhibitions Curator Dr. William Jeffett. “Visitors will find nine acrylic and silk screen paintings of Jacqueline Lee “Jackie” Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, amongst many other works.”

In addition to the variety of paintings, prints, photography and films, a special film installation provides visitors their “15 minutes of fame.” A simulated Warhol screen-test is set to film visitors as they sit in front of the camera for about a minute. The installation harkens back to the film style Andy Warhol experimented with in his days at The Factory. Visitors will be able to capture, save, and share their “movie” online.

During the three months of the Warhol exhibit, a myriad of educational programs and special events – filtered through the themes of art, fame, and mortality – will allow the community to learn, explore, and be entertained by Warhol’s works and inspirations.

The Dali
The Dali Museum, located on the waterfront in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, FL, is home to the world’s most unparalleled collection of Salvador Dalí art in the world – featuring more than 2,000 works comprised of nearly 100 oil paintings, over 100 watercolors and drawings, 1,300 graphics, photographs, sculptures, and objets d’art.

REVEALING 85 PRINTS FROM THE WORLD-RENOWNED DALÍ COLLECTION

Friday, September 20, 2013-January, 2014

St. Petersburg, FL (September 20, 2013) – The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL announces the debut of “Print is the New Black:  Dali, Printmaker” opening Friday, September 20th featuring 85 diverse prints from The Dali Museum collection. The new Fall exhibit represents multiple print suites and single prints created by Dali, and commissioned by various publishers from 1930 to 1976. The variety of themes showcased demonstrate Dali’s imagination and versatility in whatever medium he chose. The exhibit will be on view in The Dali’s Hough Gallery.

“New techniques or materials he could apply to his artwork always fascinated Dali. Thousands of images from the humorous to the sublime have been produced through Dali’s prolific vision,” commented Dali Museum curator, Joan Kropf. “As with most of his work, Dali broke norms in the print medium – allowing us to realize that everything can be reimagined.”

 Fall, 2013 Exhibit: “Print is the New Black: Dali, Printmaker”

This exhibit explores the narratives that print conveys – in a way no other medium can – and showcases Dali’s expertise and inventiveness as an image-maker.

On display are 85 prints from The Dali Museum collection which are representative of multiple print suites and single prints commissioned by various publishers from 1930 to 1976. Often overlooked, prints are a major part of Salvador Dali’s work. This exhibit celebrates his fine and varied technique in illustrations for subjects including Alice in Wonderland, Les Chants de Maldoror and Don Quixote, illustrating  Dali’s creativity along with his fine draftsmanship.

Dali’s Career as a Printmaker

Dali first prints date back to the 1930s when he collaborated with Éditions Surréalistes on an illustrated L’Immaculée Conception (the Immaculate Conception) with text by André Breton and Paul Éluard. This was Dali’s first Surrealist illustration. Subsequently, he illustrated a limited number of publications for other fellow Surrealists during this period.

Dali had a particular disdain for lithography. He broke through the boundaries of conventional lithography and experimented with a variety of dramatic processes to apply ink to stone, one of which was coined “bulletism.” In the mid-1960s Dali began to work closely with the American publisher Sidney Z. Lucas, proprietor of the Phyllis Lucas Gallery in New York. From 1966 onwards many publishers repeatedly urged Dali to produce watercolors or gouaches on literary, botanical or musical subjects. The designs were then transferred to plates by lithographers or engravers or reproduced by a photomechanical process. Dali possessed a keen interest in both the Renaissance and current scientific events.

The Memories of Surrealism suite represents Dali’s meditation on Surrealism. Although Surrealism was a historically bound movement, it is a timeless source of inspiration to art, literature, film, advertising, and fashion. Here, we find Dali intrigued by the theme of memory, which held such a powerful grip on his own career. The suite consists of twelve original etchings and lithographs produced in 1971. The suite contains the print the Eye of Surrealistic Time with a clock-eye peering over an elongated horizon.

The Dali Museum, showcasing 85 prints in “Print is the New Black: Dali, Printmaker,” will allow the public to relish this private collection of Dali’s expansive print works on display until early January.

About The Dali

The new Dali Museum opened on January 11, 2011 at One Dali Blvd. in St. Petersburg and is a work of distinguished architecture. The museum offers visitors an Avant-Garden, a 1934 Rolls Royce that rains and thunders, a Spanish-themed café, and the largest museum store in the State.  Housing the largest collection of Salvador Dali’s work outside of Spain, the amazing works of art finally have a home designed specifically for this collection. The museum has attracted the world’s attention and is listed as one of the top buildings to see in your lifetime in AOL Travel News, was voted the top museum design in the state in a competition conducted by The Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida), and was recently named on Flavorwire.com as “One of the 20 Most Beautiful Museums in the World.”

The museum’s exterior is itself a work of art, featuring 1062 triangular-shaped glass panels. This geodesic glass structure – nicknamed the “Enigma” – is the only structure of its kind in North America and is a 21st century expression of Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome as utilized in Dali’s Teatro Museo in Figueres, Spain. No two-glass panels are identical, providing a kaleidoscopic view of St. Petersburg’s picturesque waterfront. The Helical Staircase – a spiral that ascends to the third floor galleries and beyond – is the main architectural element of the interior. An energetic form created with mathematical precision and resembling a strand of DNA, Dali recognized the helix as evidence of the divine in nature.

The Dali is home to the Morse Collection, carefully assembled over four decades and donated by A. Reynolds and Eleanor R. Morse.

The Dali Museum is located at One Dali Boulevard, St. Petersburg, Florida 33701.For additional information contact 727-823-3767, or thedali.org.
