Dalí’s Masterworks in Augmented Reality

< All Exhibits

November 4, 2019 – Indefinitely

View eight Dalí Masterworks in the Museum’s permanent collection using augmented reality (AR) technology to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning behind their complex imagery. Coined by Dalí Museum founder A. Reynolds Morse, the term “Masterworks” refers to paintings exceeding five feet in height or width, painted over a period of a year or longer – in other words, they are both monumental in scale and critical Dalí paintings. To see these works through the lens of AR, get the free Dalí Museum App from the App Store (Apple) or Google Play (Android). Then view these remarkable canvases in the James Family Wing (or reproductions of the works from anywhere on your personal device).

What to Expect
Viewing each Masterwork through The Dalí Museum app on a mobile device, visitors see the paintings come to life, highlighting and exploring their complexities. The details featured in the AR experience are based in part on common questions and challenges Museum-goers have about these works, providing a more meaningful understanding of Dalí’s canvases. Those who have seen these paintings are invited to look again and experience them in a whole new way.

How to Get the App on Your Device
1. Connect to Wi-Fi
2. Search App Store (Apple) or Google Play (Android) for “The Dalí Museum”
