Salvador Dali retrospective at the National Museum of Arts Reina Sofia in Madrid. It’s the biggest retrospective in Spain since 1983.
The exhibition devoted to Salvador Dalí opens in Madrid at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía on 27 April until 2 September 2013.
Dali. All of the poetic suggestions and all of the plastic possibilities
The show contains more than two hundred pieces, including paintings, sculptures and drawings. Dalí is also presented as a pioneering in performance art and happenings and author of ephemeral works. Some results show his participation in the field of photography, theater and film. It is a selection of works from the collections of the Dalí Foundation in Figueres, the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid and the Dali Museum in Florida, the three major organizers of the retrospective together with the Centre Pompidou.
All of the poetic suggestions and all of the plastic possibilities presents Dali as a visionary artist who used himself as an object of study, and whose actions in the public sphere made him an essential figure in the sphere of contemporary representation. The exhibition focuses primarily on his surrealist period. Special attention is devoted to his paranoid-critical method, which he developed as a mechanism for the transformation and subversion of reality, allowing the final interpretation of a work to depend totally on the viewer.
