Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium

Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique – Brussels, Belgium

< All Exhibits

October 11, 2019 - February 9, 2020

Shown here at The Dalí Museum December 15, 2018 through May 19, 2019, the exhibition Dalí & Magritte is going to the Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique. The connection and influences between the two greatest icons of the surrealist movement are highlighted.  Dalí and Magritte both aim to challenge reality, question our gaze and shake up our certainties. The Catalan and the Belgian show a fascinating proximity, despite their very different creations and personalities, which would eventually lead them to drift apart.

The exhibition reveals the personal, philosophical and aesthetic links between these two iconic artists through more than 80 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, films and archival objects.
