Visitors explore a thematic itinerary comprising surrealistic and metaphysical
landscapes and will be immersed in the artist’s amazing and highly imaginative
works. Exhibited around the world (the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation at Figueres, the Dalí Museum in Florida, the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, and MoMA in New York) these works, which can be interpreted on so many levels, were brought together in Les Baux-de-Provence.
Displayed and brought to life on the floors and sixteen-metre (52,5 ft) high walls, visitors can observe every detail of the brushstrokes, lines, and material effects. Paintings, drawings, photographs, installations, films, and archive images focus on the unique personality of the painter with the famous moustache, as well as on his obsessions with the strange and the supernatural, and his fascination with
his wife Gala, his muse and collaborator. Emblematic masterpieces, such as The Persistence of Memory, the Face of Mae West (Usable as Surrealist Apartment),
Atomic Leda, and the Temptation of Saint Anthony, highlight Dalí’s immense talent as a creator of new languages and unique canvases, inspired by the
greatest masters of painting, ranging from Velasquez, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Vermeer to Millet.
The entire digital exhibition is set to the music of Pink Floyd. Constantly experimenting and rejecting all rational mechanisms. These icons of painting
and music shared a fantastical visual imagination, in which obsessive visions and technical virtuosity were blended. Dalí’s deep colours and extended and voluminous forms emerge on the walls to the sound of tracks from legendary albums such as The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall, plunging visitors
into a soaring, peaceful, and troubling world.
This retrospective exhibition associated with the music of the legendary 1960s group, takes visitors on a timeless journey that awakens the subconscious and buried thoughts, in which Dalí’s oeuvre remains a mystery and an endless enigma.
