Following last year’s popular Van Gogh Alive immersive exhibition, St. Petersburg’s Dali Museum has partnered with Australia’s Grande Experiences to launch a similar production, Dali Alive, in the fall of 2022. A world tour for the multi-media production will be announced.
The Van Gogh presentation, which Grande Experiences says is “the most visited multi-sensory experience in the world,” was installed at the Dali Museum from November, 2020 through the following June, setting record attendance records.
Set to a classical music score, the multi-room exhibition consisted of moving, high resolution projections of the artist’s work – on wall, floor and ceiling – as text panels told his story.
Dali Alive will follow a similar trajectory, using the surrealist master’s paintings.
Said Dali Museum director Hank Hine in a prepared statement: “The Dalí’s mission is to preserve and share Salvador Dalí’s celebrated artistic legacy.
“Our partnership with Grande Experiences allows us to amplify his transformative story to a wider audience – those that can’t visit The Dalí in St. Petersburg will now have the opportunity to appreciate the legendary artist and his wide-ranging impact through this remarkable and theatrical digital display.”
