A multimedia and multi-sensory look at the art and life of one of the world’s most famous and outrageous surrealist artists, Salvador Dali, has opened in Auckland.
The multi-sensory show follows on from the success of Van Gogh Alive last year.
This exhibition combines cutting-edge technology, imagery, real objects and illusions to deliver a unique art experience.
Live Nation New Zealand managing director Mark Kneebone says audiences are being given a fascinating insight into some of Dali’s famous masterpieces and a full chronological trip through Dali’s life in pictures – the Divine Comedy Room that shows Dali’s controversial commission for Alighiere’s Dante’s Inferno, as well as the Mirror Room where viewers are exposed to Dali’s surrealist work in a 360-degree setting.
“The immersive experience will captivate audiences of all ages with floor-to-ceiling high-resolution, moving imagery of surrealist masterpieces and surround sound,” Kneebone says.
“Direct from Florence, visitors can learn more about Dali’s flamboyant personality and fascination for classical and renaissance art in real interviews with the artist himself.”
Kneebone adds that Inside Dali is truly something special.
The event was conceived, created and produced by Italy’s C&T Crossmedia, in conjunction with Belgium’s MB Presents.
The event is on at Spark Arena until the end of the month before moving to Christchurch for a July 11 opening.
