Paintings, drawings, photographs, installations, films, and archive images will focus on the unique personality of the painter with the famous moustache, as well as on his obsessions with the strange and the supernatural, and his fascination with his wife Gala, his muse and collaborator.

Emblematic masterpieces, such as The Persistence of Memory, the Face of Mae West (Usable as Surrealist Apartment), Atomic Leda, and the Temptation of Saint Anthony, highlight Dalí’s immense talent as a creator of new languages and unique canvases, inspired by the greatest masters of painting, ranging from Velasquez, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Vermeer to Millet.

Discover, from a fresh perspective, the painter’s hallucinations and dreamlike delirium, which he channelled into artistic works.

‘Dali: the endless enigma’, which will last for around 40 minutes, will reflect the painter’s inner world in an almost hypnotic atmosphere.

Pink Floyd

The entire digital exhibition will be set to the music of Pink Floyd.



Constantly experimenting and rejecting all rational mechanisms, these icons of painting and music shared a fantastical visual imagination, in which obsessive visions and technical virtuosity were blended.

Dalí’s deep colours and extended and voluminous forms emerge on the walls to the sound of tracks from legendary albums such as The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall, plunging visitors into a soaring, peaceful, and troubling world.
This retrospective exhibition associated with the music of the legendary 1960s group, will take visitors on a timeless journey that awakens the subconscious and buried thoughts, in which Dalí’s oeuvre remains a mystery and an endless enigma.
