Dali: Mind of A Genius – The Exhibition will display over 250 Dali artworks, making this the first time ever that such a large number of his masterpieces are shown within one single venue in Singapore.

The exhibition is divided into three themed areas – Femininity and Sensuality, Religion and Mythology and Dreams and Fantasy.

The female form and its sensuality is featured in Dali’s artworks in this area.  The sculpture of Women Aflame that unites two of Dali’s obsessions: A female form with drawers set aflame.

Dreams and Fantasy

Dali has been fascinated with the subconscious mind as the true canvas for expression of personality.  This is translated through his sculptures 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 the alluring Alice in Wonderland and Spellbound, a huge 11 meter by 5 meter visually spectacular 1945 painting borne from Dali’s collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock.  Spellbound is the size of two double decker buses.
