The Dalí Universe and the Shenzhen MAO Industries Company Limited are proud to present an exciting exhibition dedicated to the renowned artist and master of Surrealism, Salvador Dalí, opening on the 1st January until 31st March 2018, at the YANG Art Museum in Beijing, which was opened in 2015.
The Dalí Universe is a company specializing in Salvador Dalí, managing one of the largest private collections of Dalí artworks in the world.
Three monumental sculptures will be on display; the Dance of Time II, standing at three metres tall; the melted watch is one of Dalí ’s most well-known images. The Profile of Time monumental sculpture continues the theme of time and the Woman Aflame monumental sculpture at almost 4 meters in height illustrates Dalí ’s obsession with fire and the female figure with drawers full of subconscious secrets.
This exhibition contains a variety of artworks in different mediums, from bronze sculpture, to original Tarot collages, to surrealist furniture and Daum glass sculpture and important Dalí graphics
The Dalí Universe is headed by Mr Beniamino Levi, an Italian art dealer and collector who worked with Dalí during the 1960s. Beniamino Levi was fascinated by Dalí’s ability in using different mediums and dedicated his entire life to collecting Dalí artworks, focusing on three-dimensional creations. In fact today’s Dalí Universe artwork collection is a result of years of endeavor by Mr Levi, who began collecting Dalí when he opened Galleria Levi in Milan, Italy, in 1955.
This extraordinary collection brings to light a previously unknown aspect of Dalí’s work, allowing sculpture to take on an important role.
This is a rare and unique occasion for the people of Beijing and visitors to view a collection of Dalí artworks which offers a surreal and enthralling experience.
