New York City, New York (March 20, 2014) – Dalí Museum Director Hank Hine and Museu Picasso, Barcelona Director Bernardo Laniado-Romero announced their co-organization of the international exhibition “Picasso / Dalí, Dalí / Picasso.” This landmark exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, opens to the public at The Dalí Museum on Saturday, November 8, 2014 and runs through February 16, 2015. The exhibit will then travel to the Museu Picasso for exhibition from March 19, 2015 until June 28, 2015.
The exhibition “Picasso / Dalí, Dalí / Picasso” promises to be an international blockbuster for both museums as it will feature rarely loaned works from more than 25 international art museums and private collections worldwide pairing works of these leading artists of our era. Dozens of works – with a focus on paintings, and also featuring drawings, prints and sculpture – will be on display exclusively at The Dalí Museum St. Petersburg and the Museu Picasso, Barcelona.
“This Picasso exhibition offers the possibility of rereading the relationship between two key figures of twentieth-century art and exploring new interpretations of the period in which their lives and works intersected,” explained Dalí Museum Director Dr. Hank Hine. “Both of our permanent collections are made up of works by arguably the two most influential 20th century Spanish artists. We are honored to collaborate with Barcelona’s Museu Picasso and our enduring partners at the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí.”
The Dalí Museum will host a variety of fundraising events and private viewings starting November 1st and leading up to the public grand opening in St. Petersburg, FL on Saturday, November 8th at 10am.
