DaliMiami 2012 (March 7-11, 2012)
Dalí Miami is a celebration of perhaps the most extraordinary contributor to the art world of the 20th Century,
Spanish Master Salvador Dalí. (1904-1989)
This first-of-its-kind exhibit will take place March 7th -11th in Miami’s own architectural gem, The Moore Building in our Design District. The museum-level collection will feature over 200 originals, prints, object d’art and editioned sculptures spanning the broad gamut of Dalí‘s prolific career.
Salvador Dalí is considered by many to be the “Father of Surrealism”. Not only is he one of the greatest masters of art of the twentieth century, but his innovative thinking and spectacular draftsmanship created some of the most indelible images which have become synonymous with Art itself… The Melted Clock, the Don Quijote with sword raised, the Maternal Egg, the Freudian Drawers…. All images which are quintessentially Dalínian. The broad variety of media in which Dalí was known to have works, often surprises viewers and collectors. Our collection, culled together by renowned curator Reed V. Horth, of Robin Rile Fine Art, represents some of the most prominent and historically significant works which remain under private ownership, outside of the museums in Spain and St. Petersburg, FL. This exhibition will provide viewers with an unparalleled exposure to this master on a scale unavailable outside of the major museums of the world.
The Moore Building is the perfect location for such an exhibition due to its location in the heart of Miami’s famed Design District. This historic venue was built in 1921 (the height of Dalí’s fame) and is one of the most iconic spaces in all of Miami. The truly unique building boasts four floors of arcaded spaces, totaling more than 28,000 square feet.
If you ever felt Dalí was out of touch, out of reach, and just a bit crazy… Let us open your eyes to the truths in all these things…. and more.
“At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since”.
~ Salvador Dalí (1904-1989)
