The Royal Academy’s new blockbuster explores the friendship between two masters of modern art, Salvador Dalí and Marcel Duchamp – and how that friendship influenced their artistic outputs. The show looks at both their contrasting styles and shared themes, and the way they were both prepared to challenge convention. Dalí/Duchamp features more than 80 works, from a version of Duchamp’s famous urinal to Dali’s monumental painting, Christ of Saint John of the Cross, as well as a number of less familiar works. The show runs from October 7 to January 3, 2018. For more information, go here. See below for a sneak preview.
