Dalí & Magritte. Two surrealist icons in dialogue
Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium – Brussels
October 11, 2019 – February 09, 2020

From 11 October 2019 until 9 February 2020, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium dedicate an exceptional exhibition to Salvador Dalí and René Magritte. Ninety years after their first meeting, this exhibition explores for the first time the personal, philosophical, and aesthetic connections between the two greatest icons of the surrealist movement.

Through more than hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings and photographs, Dalí & Magritte reveals the play of influence, dialogue, and rivalry that shaped their relationship. More than 40 international museums and private collections have lent their masterpieces for this unique event. The exhibition is part of the festivities organised around the 10th anniversary of the Magritte Museum, which has welcomed more than 3 million visitors since 2009. To celebrate this special anniversary, American artist Joseph Kosuth – pioneer of the conceptual art movement – is presenting an original work in the Magritte Museum. The monumental work – measuring 3.40m by 10m – is inaugurated this Thursday, October 10, 2019, in the presence of the artist.

Salvador Dalí and René Magritte first met in the spring of 1929, in Paris, where these two emblematic Surrealists moved among the leaders of the artistic avant-garde. In August that year, Magritte joined Dalí in Cadaqués, where the latter had his home. Their Surrealist summer – which also saw visits by Éluard, Miró, and Buñuel – would prove decisive. Both Dalí and Magritte seek to challenge reality, questioning our ways of seeing and shaking up our certainties. In this they show fascinating similarities, despite the great differences in personality and artistic approach that would eventually see them drift apart. The exhibition explores their personal, but also philosophical and aesthetic, connection, through more than hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings and photographs.
