Dali’s retrospective at Beaubourg

November 28, 2012

The Beaubourg Museum will definitely be one of the hot spots in town this winter with the Dali retrospective which will display more than 150 pieces of art by the eccentric artist who was a prolific painter, sculptor and writer. Along with the paintings, visitors will have the opportunity to watch unreleased videos of the artist, TV commercials he directed, photographs…

This exhibition is an unprecedented tribute to the most famous surrealist artist who was a pioneer and an example for future generations.

The highlight of the exhibition will be the “Melting watches” painting usually displayed at the MOMA Museum in New York. However, 33 years after the last Dali retrospective, Jean-Hubert Martin, the curator of the exhibition, wants to take the audience on an alternative journey and go beyond the usual cliché of the artist with his waxed mustache.

“Nobody has really cared about these ephemeral works, the many performances he made, and I’ve tried to make an inventory of them” likes to recall Jean-Hubert Martin.

It is a vibrant tribute as it shows the artist’s real personality and how much his art was influenced by the Holocaust or the Spanish Civil War.

    I am an unconditional fan of Dali since I was about 10 years old. I saw the last retrospective at Beaubourg (and I have to say how long ago!). I shall definitely be going back.
