Exhibition : Dali, the endless enigma

In 2023, Bassins des Lumières celebrates the unparalleled and extraordinary work of Salvador Dali. This immersive exhibition presents more than 60 years of work by the Catalan master, who drew inspiration from Cubism, Surrealism and Futurism, becoming a master of the canvas application, bringing reality to life.

Dali, l'énigme sans finFollow the thematic itineraries and walk through the artist’s surreal and imaginative landscapes. Exhibited all over the world (Dalí Theatre Museum in Figueres, Dalí Museum in Florida, Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, MoMA in New York, etc.), his work invites you to walk in his unique universe.

His paintings come to life on the walls, glisten in the water of the Bassins des Lumières, revealing details of brushstrokes, lines and play of materials.

To the rhythm of Pink Floyd’s music, this digital creation brings together the two icons of painting and music in a breathtaking visual imaginary that mixes obsessive vision and masterful artistic technology. Linked to the music of the mythical 1960s band, this retrospective offers a timeless journey to the awakening of the unconscious, where Dalí’s work remains an endless mystery.
