Did you miss the first-ever exhibition of Salvador Dalí‘s work in the Middle East that premiered in Dubai earlier this year? Never fear, because more pieces from the legendary Spanish surrealist are coming to the UAE later this month.
South American-inspired restaurant Coya, located in Dubai’s Four Seasons Resort, will be bringing around 60 pieces by the prominent artist to the emirate, with an exhibit launching on June 19. Dalí is best known for eccentric pieces such as “The Persistence of Memory”, an iconic painting comprised of melting clocks, as well as the “Lobster Telephone”. The “World of Dalí” display will be on show at the eatery until August 31, and has been created in collaboration with UAE-based arts and culture company Alpha Soul.
“Guests are invited to step inside the World of Dali and experience the master’s creative mood, working environment, close relations and artist’s sensibility,” said a statement announcing the exhibit. Works on show at Coya will include “Surrealist Flower Girl” and “Space Elephant”, as well as lithographs and photographs obtained from private collections across the globe. The exhibition of pieces by the Catalonian-born artist is free to attend, and follows the success of Salvador Dalí: The Memories, a collection of works showcased in the Dubai International Financial Centre from February to April this year.
