Dalí 2.1 comes to Mexico
The Daliana Gallery, located at the Santa Fe Shopping Center in Mexico City, will be hosting the exhibition “Dalí 2.1”, which will feature 250 original pieces of Salvador Dalí’s graphic work.
The show, which was in the works for decades by Enrique Sabater and Santiago Shanahan, will also be presented in Monterrey, Mérida, and Guadalajara, and arrives in Mexico under the curatorship of Ignacio Shanahan, who said:
“Around 250 original works by Salvador Dalí will be on exhibition. These include sculptures, engravings, lithographs, engraved lithographs, collage lithographs, screenprinting, silver embossing, books, music. Not many people are aware that Dalí was a composer.”
Dalí 2.1, which opens on May 11 (the 117th anniversary of the surrealist painter’s birth), will cover the artist’s creative period from 1951 to 1981.
The exhibition will not have a chronological order, but rather a thematic one:
“We set up different cells where everything on a specific topic can be seen together, but even if a work has a predominantly religious theme, it also has something playful. “The axes are completely mixed,” Ignacio Shanahan explained.
The exhibition will be interactive, so visitors are advised to bring an electronic device and headphones to fully enjoy the experience.
From May 11 to June 30, Dalí 2.1 will be open Monday through Thursday from 12:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Friday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Dates for Monterrey, Guadalajara, and Merida are also considered, with details yet to come.
