Dalí Universe Presents 350 Works of Art by Salvador Dalí in Shanghai
Salvador Dalí, Spellbound (detail).
SHANGHAI.- The Stratton Foundation and the Dalí Universe present an exciting exhibition dedicated to the renowned artist and master of Surrealism, Salvador Dalí. The exhibition “Salvador Dalí in Shanghai” is a rare collection of artworks that will delight and surprise. Opening July 31st and on view till the 14th of August at the Shanghai Art Museum, it continues to run throughout August at the Art Shaker.

The exhibition “Salvador Dalí in Shanghai” commemorates the 20th anniversary of Dalí's death and displays the artist in all his glory.

Curator of the exhibition and President of the Stratton Foundation, Mr Benjamin Levi is an avid collector and expert of Dalí’s work. A personal friend of the artist, Mr Levi has assembled the collection over the past forty years, carefully selecting each artwork in order to bring various aspects of Dalí’s lifework to the public eye.

As an artist, Salvador Dalí needs no introduction. He will always arouse interest, speculation, discussion and most of all, pleasure. An exhibition of epic proportions, the visitor will take an unforgettable tour of over 350 artworks.

This is the only collection of it’s kind in the world, featuring the most important and largest grouping of bronze sculptures, such as the ‘Space Elephant’ and the ‘Buste de Femme Retrospectif’. The show also displays a staggering number of rare graphics illustrating the great themes of literature, such as the ‘Divine Comedy’ and ‘Hamlet’. Beautiful shimmering glass sculptures, Dalí inspired furniture, paintings, collages of the mystical ‘Tarot’ and the Mae West’s Lips remind us that Salvador Dalí was a multi facetted artist who explored a wide range of themes and materials.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is Salvador Dalí’s vast and mesmerising original oil painting ‘Spellbound’ which was created for the set of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1945 Hollywood movie.

Four imposing monumental sculptures including the famous ‘Persistence of Memory’ will be placed outside the Shanghai Art Museum to be admired by all passers-by.

This is a rare and unique occasion for the people in Shanghai and visitors to view an enthralling collection which offers the general public a surreal and unique millennial experience beyond their wildest dreams!
