Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso exhibition coming to Ulaanbaatar

By B.DULGUUN

The Ulaanbaatar City Council is organizing the first-ever exhibition of original artwork by Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso in Ulaanbaatar, as part of the Friendly Ulaanbaatar Program, with cooperation from the Fine Arts Zanabazar Museum.
Art collector and Russian entrepreneur Alexander Shadrin approached the city council with a proposal to display his collection of artwork by Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso at the Fine Arts Zanabazar Museum. The exhibition will be on view from April 29 to May 29, and will feature sculptures, paintings, drawings, and ceramics by the two prominent artists, created during the peak of their careers.
Authorities believe that the exhibition will draw in many visitors eager to view the original work of these two world famous artists. The Fine Arts Zanabazar Museum proposed that the Ulaanbaatar City Council offer its support by providing the 5.7 million MNT required for renting glass display cases to house the sculptures and ceramics, and in publishing a catalog for the exhibition.
After a meeting of museum and city officials, the city council agreed to support the exhibition as it supports the goals of the Friendly Ulaanbaatar Program and will enrich the city’s artistic resources, as well as give tourists and local residents the opportunity to view pieces by world renowned artists.
“Seeing remarkable, world famous artwork with your own eyes feels incredible. I believe it will be a very nice gift to people who enjoy classic artwork and paintings,” said E.Bat-Uul, Mayor of Ulaanbaatar.
The owner of the collection has negotiated earnings from entrance fees for the exhibition, but says he will donate a portion of the income to the Fine Arts Zanabazar Museum.
