I am Surrealism! Dalí Theatre-Museum

Jul 22, 2020 — Jul 1, 2021

Just what exactly is Dalí's Surrealist art all about? How do his otherworldly landscapes relate to themes of the subconscious mind, dreams, desires, the fear of death, and the tension between the 'real' world and that of the imagination? What is universal about the human experience and how is our true nature subject to the vicissitudes of life and societal norms? And, what is the artist's...

Just what exactly is Dalí's Surrealist art all about? How do his otherworldly landscapes relate to themes of the subconscious mind, dreams, desires, the fear of death, and the tension between the 'real' world and that of the imagination? What is universal about the human experience and how is our true nature subject to the vicissitudes of life and societal norms? And, what is the artist's job in representing these themes?

In this comprehensive exhibition at the Dalí Theater Museum, twelve of Dalí's landscapes will be used to answer some of these brain-scrambling questions – and many more – through a fascinating deep dive into the tapestry of esoteric symbolism contained within Dalí's iconic artworks.

By exploring some of the common thematic threads that run through Dali's landscapes, from barren desert-like vistas to the prevalence of cypress trees as well as a fair share of sexually charged imagery, the off-the-wall quirky style that Dalí embodied through his art is revealed. Through this, we are left with some profound philosophical questions about simulacra, aesthetics, morality, and the relationship between art, rationality, and the lived experience.

Dalí Theatre-Museum

4.8 / 5 (580 reviews)

'I want my museum to be a single block, a labyrinth, a great surrealist object. It will be a totally theatrical museum. The people who come to see it will leave with the sensation of having had a theatrical dream.'

Dalí got his wish. The Dalí Theatre-Museum – under which the artist himself lies buried – is one of the most surreal and theatrical museums in the world. This unique museum, decorated with giant eggs and fantastical figures, features the largest collection of works by Salvador Dalí, including exclusive items from his personal collection.
