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.

IMAGINARY GARDENS: Joan Fontcuberta Mapping Dali’s Landscapes

2003 01 Sep
2004 01 Jan

Installation show designed specifically for the Dalí Museum and responding to the Museum's collection by the Barcelona-based Catalan photographer. Fontcuberta's work questions the notion of "truth" as constructed by the photographic medium, particularly in the context of the digital age when the already fragile "reality" can be so easily manipulated. Curated by William Jeffett.
