Salvador Dalí at the Centre Pompidou
From 21 November 2012 to 25 March 2013
A surrealist genius rediscovered
Spanish genius Salvador Dalí is known by almost everyone, whether they are art connoisseurs or not. Now, renowned Parisian modern art museum the Centre Pompidou is honoring this master artist with a never-before-seen exhibition. Almost 200 works created by the controversial painter will be displayed from November 21, 2012 until March 25, 2013. This exhibition will allow visitors to discover and rediscover the paintings that have influenced an entire generation of artists, leading to an intellectual and sexual revolution in the art world. This exhibition focuses on both the work and the personality of Dalí himself, as this iconic figure also made waves by being a character in the world of celebrities. Among Salvador Dalí's many public appearances, one can count television shows, theater projects and many other interactions with various forms of media. Therefore, the man who enjoyed putting on a show is as much the focus of the Centre Pompidou's exhibition as his groundbreaking art is. This tribute to one of the most prominent masters of surrealism, at one of the most famous modern art museums in the world, should not be missed.
