Influential Spanish artist Salvador Dalì is the focus of a major exhibition which encourages visitors to rethink the position he occupied in 20th-century art, suggesting that his legacy goes beyond his important role within the Surrealist art movement.

The Reina Sofía exhibition displays over 200 works by Dalì — comprising paintings, sculptures and drawings — and focuses primarily on his celebrated surrealistic works as well as his earlier career.

It also examines the paranoid-critical technique that he pioneered in the 1930s, a method used to transform and subvert reality, allowing the viewer to come to their own interpretation of the finished piece. 

Mon-Sat 10.00-21.00. Sun 10.00-14.30. Tue closed.
