For years, The Dalí Museum has demonstrated a commitment to creating digital experiences that entertain, inspire, and encourage further immersion into all that was – and is – the genius of Salvador Dalí. Now, as part of the current Picasso and the Allure of the South exhibition, visitors to the Museum may further their understanding of the genre of cubism through an exclusive new artificial intelligence experience called YOUR PORTRAIT, developed in partnership with Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

In the span of a few minutes, while their one-of-a-kind cubist portrait is generated, guests will gain insight into cubist imagery, compositions and color palettes alongside experiencing how the machine-learning application mimics those characteristics.

“We know that not everyone experiences the art the same way,” said Kathy Greif, Chief Operating Officer at The Dalí. “We aim to offer our visitors multiple ways of viewing works, absorbing information and even the opportunity to become part of the art. With our latest digital endeavor – YOUR PORTRAIT – guests can immerse themselves in the cubist movement (which Picasso was known for) by creating a one-of-a-kind cubist self-portrait, while also viewing rare, original Picasso works. This combination ultimately creates a personal experience for each guest.”

The experience elevates key concepts explored in the exhibition. With works from six decades of his prolific career, the exhibition is organized chronologically, showcasing Picasso’s early experimentation and the evolution of cubism, through his later works that turned to a deeper engagement with the unconscious and surrealism.

Organized in collaboration with Musée National Picasso-Paris, which holds the most significant collection of the artist’s works, the exhibition presents 79 paintings, drawings and collages – approximately half of which have never been seen in the U.S.

The exclusive exhibition is in its final month at The Dalí, running through May 22, 2022. Advance timed-tickets are required to visit and are available at
