This week, head to the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands and enter the surreal mind of Salvador Dalí, one of the 20th century’s best-known artists and the most iconic figure of the surrealist movement. Dalí: Mind of a Genius – The Exhibition will run from 14th May until 30th October and will showcase some of the best works of Salvador Dalí, with over 250 artworks to be enjoyed. Works range from paintings and sculptures, to fashion, furniture and jewellery.

The exhibition explores Dalí’s inspiration and creative processes, and promises to transform visitors into his eccentric mind, to discover his version of reality and his interpretation of art. Visitors will be immersed in three themed areas – Femininity and Sensuality, Religion and Mythology and Dreams and Fantasy:

"Dali Mind of Genius "

Femininity and Sensuality features artworks that depict the female form and its sensuality and includes important pieces such as the sculpture of Women Aflame, Space Venus and Anthropomorphic Cabinet.

Religion and Mythology reflects Dalí’s tempestuous and ambiguous relationship with the Church. Artworks found in this gallery include renowned sculptures such as the Snail and the Angel, Adam and Eve, and Vision of the Angel.

Dreams and Fantasy embodies Dalí’s enduring fascination with the subconscious mind as the true canvas for expression of personality. This can be seen through sculptural works such as Persistence of Memory and Dance of Time I. Other works that refer to a life lived through dreams and distorted visions of reality include Alice in Wonderland and Spellbound, a huge 11 meter by 5 meter visually spectacular 1945 painting borne from Dalí’s collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock.
