I have so much to show you from the museum visit that I need to do this in many parts. I must say, that just the layout and design of the museum itself was of a high standard and reminded me of the museums in Paris. The Dali exhibit occupied a whole level and because the museum itself is circular in structure, you basically end up where you began. It’s pretty cool.
As you enter you’re greeted by a melting clock – the transience of time, which I can relate to as I approach mid-life. It’s almost scary how fast time passes.
I am a sucker for intelligent and profound quotes, so it was with joy that I read each one. It was wonderful how each one prodded my brain into deep thought. I was reminded how much we need art in our lives in order to renew out souls. We just can’t live by Science alone.
You go through this screen of a projected image of Dali. I think it was to evoke the feeling of being in a dreamscape.
It was quite an education to read the history of Dali from the time he was born in 1904 in Spain.
I wouldn’t mind coming again to go through them all really slowly. We spent almost 3 hours at the museum, but I guess you could spend up to 5 or more.
The iconic melted clocks first appeared in 1931.
