The life and works of Salvador Dalí have come to life in a way never experienced before. The Dalí Museum recently debuted its newest exhibition: Dalí Alive 360°, a breathtaking and otherworldly journey into the art of Dalí.
The multi-sensory art experience envelops visitors in 360 degrees of light and sound, within a monumental new Museum space — The Dalí Dome. Dalí Alive immerses visitors in the artist’s surreal landscapes, iconic melting clocks and mind-bending illusions with touchpoints from the artist’s childhood in Spain, through his introduction to the surrealist circles in Paris, his refuge in America and finally his return to Spain.
The animations of Dalí’s works featured in Dalí Alive illuminate the challenges and triumphs of his artistic career and provide visitors the sensation of stepping into the life of Dalí himself. Tickets are on sale now.
This dynamic new exhibition is the first time for visitors to experience The Dalí Dome, where projection-mapped digital images will dynamically display from the floor to the top of the structure. Those who visited Van Gogh Alive during its time at The Dalí will recognize the experience, as Dalí Alive is co-produced by the Museum and Grande Experiences — the creator of Van Gogh Alive and a world leader in the creation and display of multi-sensory, immersive experiences.
“Dalí Alive 360°” is a customized experience with imagery created specifically for the 360-degree environment of The Dalí’s Dome by Omnispace360, the creator of immersive environments as seen at Austin City Limits and six Super Bowls. Omnispace360 also engineered the Dome and surround projections.
“Dalí experimented beyond the classical medium of painting,” said Hank Hine, executive director of The Dalí. “He designed an experiential art theater complete with live mermaids for the 1939 World’s Fair, created a spatial optical illusion at the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Spain by transforming a room into the face of Mae West and designed ballet sets and costumes. He would have loved both the geodesic structure of the Dome and the breathtaking visual drama the 360-degree environment provides for this innovative display of his works.”
