A large-scale Salvador Dalí exhibition is coming to Sydney

An exhibition of of Salvador Dalí’s sculptures and graphic artworks is coming to Sydney.

Though the Spanish surrealist’s most well-known works were undoubtedly his paintings, the artist also left behind a collection of photography, films, jewellery and sculptures in his stead following his death in 1989.

Two Salvador Dalí sculptures, Nobility of Time and Dance of Time II, will be exhibited in Sydney alongside a suite of the artist’s other work.

The Dalí Universe will be providing the pieces, including Nobility of Time and Dance of Time II, “three museum-size bronze sculptures and another huge piece” to Sydney’s Billich Gallery.

January 2019 will mark 30 years since the artist’s death. He passed away from heart failure, not long after making his final statement to the press: “When you are a genius, you do not have the right to die, because we are necessary for the progress of humanity.”
