Around 60 pieces will be a part of ‘The World of Dali’.
Earlier this year, the first-ever Salvador Dali exhibition rolled into town. From February 11 to April 22, a number of Salvador Dali’s most iconic works were on display at the DIFC.
Don’t be too hard on yourself if you missed the opportunity to visit the exhibition back then. The insatiable appetite for Salvador Dali in Dubai has meant that another exhibition of the late artist is returning to the emirate this month.
And from the sounds of things, it’s going to be an absolute winner.
The works of the Spanish surrealists will be on exhibition from June 19 until the end of August at COYA Dubai located at the Four Seasons Resort in Jumeirah Beach. COYA has partnered with Alpha Soul, an art and cultural company in the UAE, on this exhibition titled ‘The World of Dali’.
Alpha Soul was the company responsible for getting Dali to Dubai the last time around as well. Besides, it has also pulled off an exhibition of other major international artists in Dubai including the one of Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro at the Burj Khalifa in 2016.
Included in the exhibition are lithographs and photographs sourced from private collectors around the world. You’ll be able to see photographs of Dali taken by his friend Robert Descharne.
The World of Dali is intended to give attendees a deep-dive into the curious psyche of one of the world’s most famous and eccentric artist. Some of his most notable works like the Surrealist Flower Girl, Space Elephant, Surrealist Gastronomy and Surrealist King will be exhibited.
If you’ve always admired the creative genius behind the imagery of flaming giraffes and melting watches, here’s your chance to get into the mind of the brilliant artist who died in 1989, aged 84.
Entry to The World of Dali is free, and we can’t wait to check it out. See you there.
