Price £15

Take another look at two artistic giants: father of conceptual art Marcel Duchamp, and larger-than-life Surrealist Salvador Dalí.

Running from: 7 October - 3 January 2018.

This original exhibition brings together around 60 works, including some of Dalí’s most inspired and technically accomplished paintings and sculptures, and Duchamp’s groundbreaking assemblages and readymades. It will also showcase the less familiar: photographs by Dalí, paintings by Duchamp, correspondence and collaborations between the two artists.

Presented as a conversation taking place through art, this focused exploration offers fresh ways of looking at two figures, radically revising their familiar places in art history. Through the lens of their intriguing friendship, visitors will gain a new perspective on two equally inventive, intelligent and irreverent minds.

Q: Oh Dalí... The great moustachioed icon. Did you know, his mustache is one of the most influential pieces of facial hair in history, as voted by Movember participants. The World Beard Championships even host an entire category with specific guidelines dedicated to Dalí’s quintessential look. How about that? Moving swiftly on... Dalí found deep meaning in a certain vegetable, in which he claimed he was attracted to its “logarithmic curve”. The question is, which vegetable became the subject of his fascination?
