Yorkville Village announced a showcase a world-class art and fashion exhibition curated around surrealist master Salvador Dalí. Dalí x is the first viewing of its kind in North America. In partnership with The Dalí Universe and Hazelton Fine Art Galleries, this colourful exhibition is open to the public inside Yorkville Village from September 7th – 30th.
Curated by Yorkville Village, the exhibit features a selection of unique art pieces, six designer dresses inspired by the surrealist icon, including Franco Moschino’s whimsical t-shirt dress that salutes Dalí’s iconic moustache. With approximately 30 pieces to discover, the collection includes sculptures such as Woman Aflame, Homage to Fashion and Dalinian Dancer, bringing surrealism on a global scale to Yorkville Village. Additionally, a gallery of lithographs and paintings will be featured in this once in a lifetime opportunity. Celebrated designer Jean Paul Gaultier perused the exhibit on opening night, discovering the avant-garde artist of the 20th century and his influence on the world of fashion.
As unique as the Spanish artist himself, Dalí’s collections are displayed creatively and thoughtfully throughout the centre. The exhibit offers free admission to all visitors and will remain open during regular centre hours.
