Description

This exhibition presents five mixed-media print suites, with additional mixed-media objects, that deal with science, religion, mythology, alchemy and mysticism.

Event Details

In these rarely displayed works from the Museum’s vault, Dalí asserts the connection of science with the sacred, of word with image, male with female, the bodily with the divine.

Created during Dalí’s later period when the artist turned his mind to the scientific and the spiritual, the suites build on ideas originally explored in Dalí’s 1951 Manifeste Mystique. Accompanying the visual works, the exhibit will also feature written texts by Dalí and Sigmund Freud.

The exhibit includes 54 prints and several mixed-media objects from five projects:
Mythology (1960-64) – 16 images drawn from the classical Greek pantheon; Don Quixote (1957) – twelve experimental images inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ literary masterpiece; Aliyah (1968) – six portraits, battles and sacred images on the founding of Israel; Moses and Monotheism (1975) – ten images in color, plus a sculptural portrait of Moses in silver, accompanying Sigmund Freud’s text on religion; and The Alchemy of the Philosophers (1979) – ten images on parchment made with ink and jewels and presented in a decorated box with symbols of mathematical perfection.
