SALVADOR DALI & PIERRE ARGILLET: Thirty Years of Collaboration is a unique anthology of works by iconic Surrealist artist, Salvador Dali. A selection of Dali’s etchings and drawings from the renowned Pierre Argillet Collection will be presented alongside porcelain works and tapestries, previously unseen in Singapore. This exhibition will also feature the first ever public display of two original copper plates, an exceptional opportunity for visitors to see these historical pieces up close. All works from the Pierre Argillet Collection have been authenticated and signed by Dali, and will be available for viewing and acquisition from 10th September to 5th October 2016.
The Argillet Collection is the result of a collaboration between Dali and Pierre Argillet, his publisher and confidante for over thirty years. This new exhibition endeavors to continue the journey started at REDSEA Gallery two years ago, when works from the collection were first shown in Singapore. Now featuring a plethora of previously unseen pieces in different mediums, it further highlights Dali’s capacity to be creative in so many fields and themes.
Introducing the Collection will be Christine Argillet, daughter of Pierre Argillet, who will offer first-hand accounts and personal insights into the collaboration between her father and Salvador Dali and the works they produced together. Highlights of the exhibition will include first time exhibited original etchings, drawings, Aubusson tapestries and fine porcelain plates. In addition, REDSEA Gallery and the Argillet Collection are delighted to present two previously unseen original copper plates, which Dali used during the creation process of his resulting oeuvre.
