Golfers visiting Spain’s north-east shores during 2015 will have the opportunity to combine playing on some of the best courses the country has to offer with seeing the Dalí, Breaking News exhibition, containing a selection of 75 photographs of one of Catalonia’s greatest exports, surrealist artist Salvador Dalí.

Organised by the Council of Girona and the Costa Brava Tourist Board, the exhibition was originally based in Figueres, the birthplace of Salvador Dalí and popular tourist destination for golfers on holiday in the Costa Brava. Designed to not only celebrate the 25th anniversary of the artist’s death in 1989, the exhibition also marks the 75th anniversary of Spanish News Agency EFE and the 40th anniversary of the Dalí Theatre Museum opening its doors in Figueres.

Having received more than 10,000 visitors in just over a month of it opening, the exhibition continues to be a considerable attraction to both local and foreign visitors – over half of those who saw the exhibit in Figueres were from abroad. Due to its popularity, golfers visiting the Costa Brava region will have a number of opportunities to see this unique collection of photography. The Dalí, Breaking News exhibition will be in the Cultural Centre in Lloret de Mar until January 6th 2015, before it moves to the Casa Saladrigas in Blanes between March 4th – April 15th, and then on to Girona where it will be held at the Dalí Museum from May 1st until August 31st.

Ramón Ramos, Director of the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board, said: “Every year, Costa Brava welcomes more than one million tourists, many of whom come to enjoy not only the fantastic golf facilities available within the region, but to sample the rich and diverse artistic and gastronomic culture on offer.

“The Salvador Dalí exhibitions and museums remain one of Costa Brava’s greatest tourist attractions, with his artwork continuing to mesmerise visitors. This photographic exhibition, which will continue to run throughout Costa Brava during 2015, provides visitors with a fantastic opportunity to understand the figure of Dalí and his innate ability to be the main focus of media attention.”

Born in Figueres in 1904, Salvador Dalí is best known for his technical skill as a painter and the shocking quality of his imagination. Among the artist’s most famous works of art is the Persistence of Memory, which introduced a surrealistic image of soft, melting pocket watches and epitomises Dalí's theory of ‘softness’ and ‘hardness’, which was central to his thinking at the time.

Dalí consistently depicted the landscape of his homeland in his artwork, one that became synonymous with the landscape of imagination and dreams. Throughout his life, he forged a remarkable body of work and he continues to be one of Costa Brava’s most famous figures, with his artwork remaining a key tourist attraction.
