Espace Dalí, located in the heart of the famous artists’ village, Montmartre, exhibits the largest collection of artworks by Salvador Dalí in France.
The collection is the fruit of the emblematic surrealist artist’s extravagant inspiration: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches.
From Dali’s quest for immortality to his diving into subconscious, from his fascination for science to his multifaceted vision of love, discover Dalí’s work through an original collection (redesigned in March 2016).
From 09 September 2016 to 31 March 2017
JOANN SFAR – SALVADOR DALI, ONE SECOND BEFORE AWAKENING
Espace Dalí has given free rein to Joann Sfar, one of today’s most talented storytellers, famous for his comic book, “The Rabbi’s Cat” and his film, “Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life”, to imagine the scenario for an artistic encounter with the one whom Brassaï called, “the bold and lucid explorer of the irrational.”
The exhibition is an invitation to take a “motionless journey” of a painter and his models, through dreams and reality as Joann Sfar’s sketched story unfolds. Discover more than 200 original drawings, sketches, drafts in an enchanted setting surrounded by surrealist sculptures and objects by Dalí and the Haute Couture designs by Schiaparelli that inspired the artist.
