Milan is a fabulous place for Christmas gift shopping and its shops are bound to provide you with plenty of ideas for Christmas presents.
Providing a perfect excuse to come to Milan for a long weekend in a bed and breakfast, and, maybe to do some Christmas shopping in one of the most sophisticated cities in northern Italy, after 50 years, Salavador Dalì’s surreal, provocative work returns to Milan, Italy.
Held in central Milan at the Palazzo Reale, a stone’s throw away from Milan’s majestic cathedral, Il Duomo, is the “The Dream Comes Closer” – “Il Sogno Si Avvicina” exhibition of the works of Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dalì. The exhibition of Dali’s art explores the artist’s relationship with landscapes, dreams, and desires.
This display in Milan of Dali’s work has been enhanced by the involvement of collaborator and friend of Dali, the architect Oscar Tusquets Blanca.
Four Dalì Flavour Sections
Divided into four sections, each of which are supported by multi-media including films of interviews with the artist himself, the exhibition virtually brings Dalì to life. As well as the original approach to the display of Dali’s work, the exhibition also highlights Dalì’s links with the Italian surrealism and metaphysical art movements. Works from this period of the artist’s life show other sides to Dali’s character, facets of the artist’s complex character which were mystical, religious and sentimental.
Feature Yourself in Dali’s Work
On show is the well-known Dalì work ‘The Mae West Room‘, with its surreal portrait of the late Hollywood star depicting the actresses nose as a fireplace and her mouth as a sofa. To compliment to the experience of viewing this portrait, a room has been furnished in the style the painting allowing viewers to become part of the artwork. Sounds like an idea Dalì himself might have approved of.
Dali and Walt Disney
Being in Milan, Italy’s fashion and design capital, appropriately enough the exhibition also features Dali’s experimentation in the world of fashion and design, as well as Dali’s involvement in the world of cinema. Indeed, visitors to the exhibition will be able to view the fruits of the work of Dali and Walt Disney which resulted in the short “Destiny”.
Dali On Display Until January 30 2011
Produced in conjunction with Madrid’s Salvador Dali Foundation and Milan City Council, this display of the late Spanish artist’s work runs from now until the 30 January 2011. Dali’s works have been loaned to Milan’s Palazzo Reale exhibition area by the Reina Sofia gallery of Madrid and other gallery’s which display the work of this iconic Spanish artist.
Fans of Dalì’s surrealism who would like to see this unique exhibition of his work will need somewhere to stay in Milan, in which case they might like to look here for some accomodation ideas: Caffelletto’s selection of bed and breakfasts and self-catering apartments in Milan.
