Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the birth of Salvador Dalí, the Reina Sofia Museum will put on an exhibition of the artist’s work, entitled “Dalí: Cultura de Masas” (culture of the masses), which looks at how the the industrial world influecnced his work. It comprises 400 works of art, from paintings and drawings to documents, advertisements and even films. This exhibition is the first to screen a short film from Disney, entitled “Destiny”, which the studio never released in the cinemas.
The Reina Sofía press release says: “Beginning in twenties Barcelona, with its manifestos against painting and in favour of the new industrial beauty, it continues in Paris with the Surrealists (so interested in the cinema and other aspects of the mechanical and industrial world) and ends in 1940 when Dalí went to the United States -a country where the new visual manifestation flourished as never before.”
