Salvador Dalí

Salvador Dali

The utterly surreal Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dalí (1904–89) issued a suite of color prints titled Memories of Surrealism in 1971. The dozen etchings and lithographs of this series are exemplary of Dalí’s representation of everyday images with multivalent symbolism set in peculiar arrangements and otherworldly contexts. This focus exhibition not only features the work of one of the most enigmatic and popular artists of the twentieth century, but also, more importantly, provides a glimpse into the creative corners of his eccentric mind. Even at a time when our society is encouraging expansion of creativity and seeking novel approaches to problem-solving, Dalí’s works still challenge the normative and our automatic acceptance of “reality.”
