Magritte & Dalí at The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida

Arts.  St. Petersburg, FL,  19/05/2019

Magritte & Dalí is a first-of-its-kind special exhibition dedicated to the world’s two most celebrated surrealists, Rene Magritte and Salvador Dalí. Showcasing carefully curated, exemplary pieces from Magritte’s and Dalí’s works, the exhibit pushes back the curtain to reveal what lies beyond the simple appearance of painted images. These two preeminent surrealists opened minds to an alternative view of the world, constantly challenging reality.




Magritte & Dalí takes viewers on a journey from the late 1920s to the early 1940s, the period when the two artists spent significant time together and displayed their works in the same Surrealist exhibitions. Although both had very different approaches to their respective paintings, they were equally committed to implementing practices that challenged reality and generated fuller freedom of imagination and experience. Their works also employ several shared themes, which are explored throughout the exhibit. Magritte paintings on display include Le Baiser [The Kiss] (1938), La Magie noire [Black Magic] (1945) L’Oiseau de ciel [Sky Bird] 1966, Dieu n’est pas un saint [God Is No Saint] (ca. 1935-36).

“Rene Magritte is a quintessential figure in the surrealist movement, and we are proud to display the first exhibit solely pairing the most recognized Surrealists of our era,” said Dr. Hank Hine, Executive Director of The Dalí.

Magritte & Dalí is organized by The Dalí Museum in partnership with the Magritte Museum (a part of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium) and is co-curated by Dr. William Jeffett, Chief Curator of Exhibitions at The Dalí Museum, and Dr. Michel Draguet, General Director of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

Following the presentation of Magritte & Dalí at The Dalí Museum, it will travel to the Magritte Museum in Brussels.
