DALÍ REVEALED: Land, Myth, Perception and God

2005 01 Feb
2005 01 Dec

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 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.

SALVADOR DALÍ: Hand Painted Dream Photographs Selections From the Permanent Collection

2003 01 Sep
2004 01 Jan

In 1935 Dalí 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 Dalí 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.
