In 2020, the Carrières de Lumières are illuminated by Salvador Dalí’s famous works. ‘Dalí: the endless enigma’ encompasses more than 60 years in the career of the Catalan master, who developed and invented various artistic styles.
You can explore a thematic itinerary comprising surrealistic and metaphysical landscapes and be immersed in the artist’s highly imaginative works. Paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, engravings, films and archive images will highlight the unique personality of the painter, as well as his obsessions with the strange and the supernatural and his fascination with Gala, his muse and wife.
Emblematic masterpieces, including the Melting Clocks, Face of Mae West, Atomic Leda and the Temptation of St Anthony, will demonstrate the extent of Dalí’s talent as the creator of new languages and unique canvases, inspired by the great masters of painting Velázquez, Raphael, Vermeer and Millet.
The entire digital exhibition will be 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.
At the same time, there will be an exhibition dedicated to Catalán architect Gaudí: 'Gaudí, the Architect of the Imaginary'
