Magritte and Dali is a first-of-its-kind special exhibition dedicated to the world’s two most celebrated surrealists, Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali. Showcasing carefully curated, exemplary pieces from Magritte’s and Dali’s works, Magritte and Dali pushes back the curtain to reveal what lies beyond the simple appearance of painted images. The two preeminent surrealists opened the mind to an alternative view of the world, constantly challenging reality.

Magritte and Dali takes viewers on a journey from the late 1920s to the early 1940s, the period when the two artists spent significant time together and displayed their works in the same Surrealist exhibitions. Although both had very different approaches to their respective paintings, they were equally committed to implementing practices that challenged reality and generated fuller freedom of imagination and experience. Their works also employ several shared themes, which are explored throughout the exhibit.

“Rene Magritte is a quintessential figure in the surrealist movement, and we are proud to display the first exhibit solely pairing the most recognized Surrealists of our era,” said Dr. Hank Hine, Executive Director of The Dali.
