Today we saw the big Salvador Dali exhibit that’s playing at Spark Arena. It’s modeled on the Van Gogh exhibits that have been so successful.
The literal and figurative centerpiece of the show was a room with these giant screens showing animated and deconstructed images of the man and his work. Following the advice of a pétanque player we talked to at the luncheon, we headed straight for the big room and watched the whole 30-minute montage with its electronic chill soundtrack. Pretty neat. Then we worked our way back through to the beginning of the exhibit and read some of the explanatory notes. Our way was a way better approach!
I wasn’t a huge Dali fan before, and that hasn’t changed much. But I did come away with a much better appreciation for the breadth and intricacy of his work.
