Housing the greatest private collection of Salvador Dali’s works, Espace Dali has just closed its doors for four months to undergo embellishment works in order to rethink the volumes and rejuvenate the place.

Salvador Dali leaves Paris for a few months… Espace Dali has just closed its doors, on December 15, 2017, for 4 months to undergo some embellishment works. A space that opened only two years after the artist’s death, in 1991, and welcoming every year some 150,000 visitors from all over the world.

Adeline Rispal architecture office – known for the work on France Pavilion during the universal exposition in Milan in 2015, or the MUCEM (the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations) – has been entrusted with bringing the museum back to its former glory. The idea behind such renovations? “Redrawing the museum volumes and imagine a new staging” while telling “a special story about Dali’s art career that is voluntarily partial because it highlights a part of his work that is less known but puts an essential light on his technic and his creativity”.

A space that houses a collection mainly focusing on furniture, bronze sculptures by the artist and surrealist objects of which Dali only knows the secret, the whole is accompanied with gouache paintings and other engravings. And a collection that moves to Nantes during the work period, at La Rosière private mansion, from December 26, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
