Dali sculptures, lithographs at the Byzantine Museum

Following the brilliant exhibition on Salvador Dali held in Athens two years ago at the Museum of Cycladic Art, the capital is getting another chance get its fill of this multifaceted master’s work at the Byzantine Museum (22 Vas. Sofias, Kolonaki, tel 210.721.1027/723.2178). Running to February 18, the museum’s Villa Ilissia will be showing a series of sculptures and lithographs by the most famous representative of surrealist art. The exhibition is curated by Brussels art consultant Pick Keobandith and Greek art critic and historian Athena Schina. By focusing on sculpture, the aim of the event is to present a different aspect of the artist’s work, one that is less known to the general public. The exhibition brings together 12 original sculptures, which are bronze and some of which are more than two meters high. There are also another 12 bronze sculptures that are numbered, as well as 21 lithographs. Many of the works that will be on display are on loan from private collections, and after Athens the exhibition will be traveling to Cyprus, Dubai and Australia.
