SALVADOR DALI Another Dimension. Graphics, Sculpture, Porcelain

Opening of an exhibition of the legendary Spanish artist Salvador Dalí will take place on March 19, 2015 in the Sheremetevsky palace (St. Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Music, 34 Fontanka Embankment).

The great master's original artworks from a private collection will be presented by a contemporary art gallery «Tatiana Nikitina's Art Holding». The gallery possesses the collection of etchings by Salvador Dalí which he created in the period from 1934 to 1973 – from the «Mythology», «Hippies», «Faust», «Venus in Furs», «Don Juan», «Apollinaire» series. The graphics comes from a famous French publisher Pierre Argillet's collection, the friend and the age-mate of surrealists and dadaists. In Russia works from the Argillet's publishing house are presented in the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, and Grabar Institute of Scientific Restoration and Conservation of Arts confirmed with the expert opinion their high artistic level, museum and cultural value.

If the Dali's graphic heritage has already been familiar to public due to exhibitions in Russia, some other spheres of the artist's creative activity can become a revelation for the audience.

At the exhibition there will be shown some unexpected sides of the Dali's talent: arts and crafts collectibles − a set of the porcelain made as a result of Salvador Dalí's, Pierre Argillet's and André Reno's cooperation, a gobelin «Simeon» acquired thanks to the Salvador Dalí's Museum in London, and also Dali's bronze sculpture.

Dali's etchings and his sculpture are filled by recognizable characters and images – soft clocks, tower, beans, ants, elephants with thin legs, snail, egg, boxes, fragile female figures… The world of subconscious and the world of dreams, psychoanalysis and literature intertwine in his creative work, creating the atmosphere of another dimension or the curved space.

At the «Another Dimension» exhibition in the Sheremetevsky palace you will be able to plunge into the Salvador Dalí's world and to feel yourself as its part.

The exhibition will last until May 11, 2015.
