Salvador Dali Exhibit At The High Museum Of Art In Atlanta On August 7, 2010

Dali: The Late Work - August 7, 2010 to January 9, 2011 at the High Museum of Art

The first major exhibition to reevaluate the last half of Salvador Dalí's career will be presented exclusively at the High Museum this fall. In the late 1930s Dalí underwent a radical change, in which he embraced Catholicism, developed the concept of nuclear mysticism and, in effect, reinvented himself as an artist.

Comprising more than 40 paintings and a related group of drawings, prints and other Dalí ephemera, Salvador Dalí: The Late Work will explore the artist's enduring fascination with science, optical effects and illusionism as well as his connections to such artists and celebrities of the 1960s and 1970s as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Willem de Kooning and Alice Cooper.

"Salvador Dalí at the High Museum brings together one of the most important groupings of the artist's later work to ever be shown, and also affords our visitors the opportunity to meet one of the greatest artists and intriguing minds of the twentieth century," said Michael E. Shapiro, the High's Nancy and Holcombe T. Green, Jr. Director. "It will be thrilling for audiences to see the evolution of the world’s best known Surrealist.

The High Museum of Art is located in Midtown Atlanta, just minutes from DeKalb County. For more info, visit High Museum of Art.
