‘Gala Salvador Dalí. A Room of One’s Own in Púbol’

Gala was born into a family of intellectuals from Kazan and spent her childhood in Moscow.  After moving to Switzerland, she met Paul Éluard, moving to Paris with him and subsequently coming into contact with members of the surrealist movement such as Max Ernst.

In 1929 she travelled to Cadaqués, where she met Dalí, who she fell in love with and started living with.  They were exiled for eight years in the United States, and on their return they would live between Portlligat, New York and Paris.

The exhibition explores this enigmatic and intuitive woman, who had relationships with many artists and intellectuals.  Known worldwide for being the wife of Salvador Dalí, his muse and the protagonist of some of his paintings, we witness the transformation of Gala into a fully-fledged artist, given that the couple began producing art together, leading to the shared authorship of some works.
