The rare works of Salvador Dali will be shown in Dubai (February,11 – April,22)
At the exhibition Memories in the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) you can see lithographs, photographs and paintings of the painter, “the great and terrible” Salvador Dali, taken from the collections from all over the world.
According to contemporaries, in Dali, who was constantly aspired to the new and unexplored, there was so much energy that it was enough to realize all the plans in sculptures, paintings and even in the films.
The main intrigue of Salvador Dali’s exhibition is the presence of the painting “Shower of Jasmine”. It was first exhibited in 1954 at the Carstairs Gallery in New York, and then at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro. After that, the picture was in a private collection in Dubai for a long time and was not exhibited anywhere. It will be also the most interesting and worthy of attention the photos of Dali, made by his close friend, the French photographer Robert Desharn.
The exhibition working hours: from Sunday to Thursday – from 13.00 to 22.00, on Friday and Saturday – from 10.00 to 22.00.
One more important event in the life of the UAE is the art fair World Art Dubai 2018 (Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai)
Art Dubai 2018 will gather again leading artists, gallery owners, curators, collectors and simply lovers of beauty, presenting the best examples of contemporary art from around the world.
The art fair Art Dubai is the main event of the spring art season, within the framework of which the Global Art Forum, the Art Dubai Modern Symposium and the Abraaj Group Art Prize will take place.
Fair World Art Dubai breaks the popular stereotype that real works of art are available only to wealthy people and they can be bought only at events closed to simple public. At the World Art Dubai, hundreds of artists from all over the world represent their works.
Now you have the opportunity not only to admire art, but also to get the work you liked. Everyone will find something to his/her taste at the fair: art professionals will get acquainted with new techniques and concepts, and those who wish to personally join the contemporary art will be able to take part in one of the master classes.
You can attend creative seminars and performances, relax in cozy lounges and purchase fresh fruits on traditional farming markets – the World Art Dubai will present unique impressions to everyone!
