La Girafe en feu presents the exhibition
three universes in 101 artworks
from Salvador Dalí
From july 16 to October 31 2021
Grand quay of the port of Montreal
The exhibition DIVINA DALĺ invites you to discover the imaginary world of Dante’s Divina Commedia illustrated by the Great Master of Surrealism, Salvador Dalí. Come experience a more intimate Dalí through 101 of his works, and travel through the dimensions of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise towards the discovery of a monumental piece, created in 1944 for Alfred Hitchcock’s movie Spellbound, and never exhibited until today.
In the spirit of Salvador Dalí, who loved to collaborate with other artists of all disciplines, the founder of La Girafe en feu, Félix Bélanger, has created a series of happenings that will take place throughout the month of October.
October 6, 13, 20 and 27, 2021
Live from Divina Dalí

People came to draw, sculpt, paint, knit, write, code… in a cozy environment conducive to working. Kid Koala would curate a 4 hours set of quiet time music to keep everyone in their creative zones. It has grown to become a very popular community event and continues to be invited to cities around the world.

Sculptor, engraver, scriptwriter, writer, leading figure of the surrealist movement and above of all, most famous painter of the twentieth century
Salvador Dali, a Catalan of Spanish nationality, never ceases to captivate us, to teach us and to surprise us!
Interested in science, technology, architecture, psychoanalysis and philosophy, he has created a body of work that is both accessible and poetic.
Internationally recognized as a multidisciplinary artist with a unique style, and as a virtuoso of image and communication, this great Master has contributed immensely to the arts of the twentieth century.
His work is timeless and is embedded in the collective memory. This makes him one of the most timely artists who, still to this day, moves crowds.
By exhibiting the works of the Master of Surrealism in their own particular style, La Girafe en feu ensures that Dalí’s genius, madness, humor, and his passion for science are brought to life in the public sphere.
