DALÍ REVEALED: Land, Myth, Perception and God

< All Exhibits

February 1, 2005 – December 1, 2005

This exhibition organizes Dalí’s work into four persistent categories of obsession: Land (the landscape of Catalonia); Myth (both classical myths and the highly personalized mythology Dalí 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.
