What’s Hot in Paris- Salvador Dali at Centre Pompidou

Salvador Dali exhibit at Centre Pompidou, ParisThe talk of the town in Paris this month is the new Salvador Dali retrospective at the Centre Pompidou. Running until March 25, 2013, the blockbuster exhibit showcases 200 works by the Spanish Surrealist. Reuters points out that “the last Dali retrospective at the Pompidou in 1979 remains the most visited exhibition in the museum's history.” Often denounced for his affected personality, provocative political views, and love of money, Dali remains one of the iconic artists of the 20th century. The museum curators describe him as simultaneously one of “the most controversial and popular artists.”

The centrally-located Paris museum is open from 11 am to 9 pm every day except for Tuesday. Night owls will appreciate the nocturnal soirées on Friday and Saturday nights that keep the exhibit open until 11 pm. It’s possible to order your tickets online in advance.
