The versatile personality of Salvador Dalí, painter, set designer, poet, writer and director.
Salvador Dalí (Figueras 1904-89) joined the Surrealist movement toward the end of the 1920s. His artistic creations, expressions of the subconscious, generate irreverent, magical images connected with obsessions and doubts, in a deforming, at times paranoid delirium. The catalogue of the exhibition held in Turin analyzes this versatile personality, shedding light on the complex figure of an artist, painter, set designer, poet, writer, director. The volume contains important contributions reinterpreting the role of Salvador Dalí in contemporary art.
