(WBBM NEWSRADIO) – A first-of-its-kind Salvador Dalí exhibit is coming to the Art Institute of Chicago beginning next week.
“Dalí is probably the best known Surrealist artist. His name recognition is unparalleled,” curator Caitlyn Haskell tells WBBM Newsradi.
The Art Institute was one of the first museums to showcase the work of the Spanish artist, in 1933. The larger-than-life figure was known for his own personal brand of Surrealism and his iconic images of melting clocks.
“Salvador Dalí: The Image Disappears” runs Feb. 18 through June 12 and features 25 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and surrealist objects, focusing on the artist’s works from the 1930s.
“It’s the moment when Dalí became Dalí ,” Haskell says.
