Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968) and Salvador Dalí (1904–1989) are usually seen as opposites in almost every respect, yet in fact they shared attitudes to art and life that are manifested in their respective oeuvres on many levels. Taking their friendship as its starting point, this exhibition will demonstrate the aesthetic, philosophical and personal links between them, giving a fresh view of two of the twentieth century’s most famous artists. 


  • The First Days of Spring, 1929, by Salvador Dalí

A focused selection of approximately 60 paintings, sculptures, ready-mades, photographs, drawings and films will bring to life the myriad of connections between the works of these two very different, yet equally humorous, creative and intelligent minds. 

The exhibition has been organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and The Dalí Museum, St Petersburg, Florida, in collaboration with the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation and the Association Marcel Duchamp.

Great review
