Salvador Dalì : The Exhibition

Overview

From November 12th 2022 to February 19th 2023, in the ancient kitchens of the Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi, a unique exhibition is on display. The collection is of various aspects of Dalí's artistic production, a monumental sculpture, bronze museum sculptures, illustrated books and glass paste objects, never before seen in the city of Turin. These same works, loaned to over a hundred major international museums and exhibited in prestigious locations, have toured the world and been appreciated by over twelve million people, novel as a previously unknown aspect of Dalí's creative work.

Salvador Dalí, the undisputed Master of Surrealism, never limited himself to the mere production of paintings or two-dimensional works of art. Glass-crystal, furniture, jewels and notably bronze sculptures: his art sprang forth from whatever tool he had at his disposal.

Salvador DALÍ The Exhibition was created from this basic concept, produced by Next Exhibition - leaders in the production, organization and creation of temporary exhibitions of a cultural and edutainment nature - in collaboration with The Dalí Universe, a company specializing in Salvador Dalí and managing of one of the largest private collections of the artist's work in the world.

The show hosts large-format sculptures, in which the surrealist game of connections and transformations is projected in all its magic, while the artist's visual obsessions take shape in space through the physical manipulation of objects. Among these: "The Dance of Time" (1979-1984) and "The nobility of Time" (1977 - 1984), the contrast between "Man with butterfly" (1968-1984) and "Woman on fire" (1980), "Space Elephant" (1980) and "The Surrealist Knight" (1971 - 1984).                                                                          

Two infamous  symbols of Dalí are presented to the public with impact and force: the soft clock and the elephant with thin legs, symbols of the relativity of time and the distortion of space

The masterpieces in glass and crystal amaze for colors and shapes, from the "Cyclops" (1968) to "alla Chitarra" (1971) to the "Antiflower" (1971). Leading the visitor to bronzes such as "Il Violino" (1966) which with its sinuous shapes recalls a human back or to the two very precious "Caduceus" (1983) in 18-karat gold, silver and amethyst.

 

The exhibition also presents a nearly unedited Dalí illustrator with color graphics such as "After ten years of Surrealism" (1974), " La Fontaine’s bestiary" (1974) and "Imagination and Objects of the Future" (1975). The artist was also an illustrator as well as a painter, sculptor, director, writer and designer.

The connection between the featured works in the exhibition is curated by Beniamino Levi, one of Salvador Dalí's leading experts whom he personally met in his Parisian residences and in his homeland, Spain. Levi was fascinated by some of the Master's first sculptural works, so much so that it spurred Dalí to express his art again in sculptural form. He commissioned a series of bronzes based on the most famous surrealist images of Dalí's incredible career.
