The extremely popular Salvador Dalí sculpture exhibition at d’Arenberg winery has been extended till 31 May 2020.
The exhibition began in March this year and was scheduled to end on May 31st 2019. The response to the exhibition has been extremely strong, attracting thousands of art lovers from across Australia and Internationally.
With the d’Arenberg cube being a beacon of surrealist architecture, it’s unsurprising that the exhibition is remaining for the foreseeable future.
To add to its prestige, in October, a seven metre tall monumental original Salvador Dalí “Triumphant Elephant”, which is valued at $2.7 million dollars, will arrive in Australia and be on display at d’Arenberg.
This increases the overall value of the sculpture collection to nine million dollars.
The Salvador Dalí sculpture collection has been exhibited in major cities and museums worldwide. The collection features several magnificent sculptures of Dalí’s iconic soft watches.
The message is that “Time reigns supreme over man, governing our existence in the real world”. This is particularly relevant as 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the passing of Salvador Dali who died in 1989.
Also exhibited are paintings by Australia’s own surrealist Charles Billich, whose life was recently featured in a documentary that premiered at Cannes Film Festival, and whose artworks hang in the Vatican, The White House and the United Nations.
The d’Arenberg Winery can be found at 58 Osborn Road McLaren Vale South Australia.
