Dali electrifies Beaubourg

Highly anticipated, the exhibit dedicated to the Master of surrealism, Salvador Dali, opened a month ago and is a raging success. The reason? The breath of fresh air provided by the eccentric art of the charismatic artist in these difficult times. As one of the most controversial artists of the 20th century, he transformed art into a veritable performance. Until March 2013, 200 of his art pieces are presented to the public, from drawings to sculptures, including paintings such as the iconic «Persistence of Memory (melting pocket watches)), 1931». An opportunity to learn more about one of our favorite geniuses.
