Gala Dalí, the Surrealist muse

Until 15 November

This photographic exhibition will celebrate the intuition and creative power of Gala which drew her into the Surrealist circle, where she was surrounded by intellectuals and artists throughout her life.

It will present Gala from a new angle, not only as of the muse, the impresario who allowed Salvador Dalí to have the success he is known for, but also as the creator with an original personality and colourful life who forged her own legend.

Discover the exhibition of photographs that illustrate the personal and artistic life of Gala—Salvador Dalí’s muse and companion for more than 50 years.

For the first time in France, the exhibition retraces the exciting life of Gala —a major figure in modern art—through around 30 large-format photographs.
The exhibition complements ‘Dalí: the endless enigma’, an immersive digital exhibition in the Carrières de Lumières.

Via photographs of Gala and her entourage (Salvador Dalí, René Char, René Crevel, Paul Eluard, Max Ernst, etc.) and reproductions of paintings by Salvador Dalí and Max Ernst, the exhibition itinerary takes visitors on a journey into Gala’s life.

Some of the photos were taken during her childhood while others shed light on her relationship with Paul Eluard and the Surrealist circles.

Lastly, the exhibition shows the Gala Dalí couple, their life in Port Lligat, and their artistic collaboration.

Without Gala, I would no longer be Dalí (…) she is my oxygen, because she discovers and brings me all the essences that become converted into the honey of my thought in the busy hive of my brain.Salvador Dalí.
