From: 25/11/2016 - To: 7/05/2017

Palazzo Belloni, via Barberia 19 - Bologna

More than just an exhibit but a veritable and innovative cultural experience, “widespread” and immersive, the Dali Experience will be the biggest attraction in Bologna from November 25th, 2016 to May 7th, 2017 at the Palazzo Belloni, the historic and prestigious Bolognese building located at 19 Barberia Street.

About 200 works of art, from “The Dali Universe” Collection, one of the richest testaments to Dali’s artistic history, will be the main attractions on an interactive and multimedia journey that invites the visitor on an engaging and participatory experience. The collection includes 22 museum sculptures, 10 glass pieces created at the end of the 1960s with the famous “Daum di Nancy” glassware, 12 gold objects, more than 100 drawings taken from 10 illustrated books and 4 monumental sculptures, which will be placed at strategic points throughout the historic city center.

Curated by Loop, the Dali Experience was born out of a desire to expose the greater public to the lesser known aspects of the phantasmagoric Catalan artist, with a cutting edge approach. The unconventional curatorial aspect of the exhibit makes it a “creative act” which, starting from each work of art, reveals further levels of meaning and understanding, and involves every facet of the exhibit, as if it were one overarching work of art. The goal is to empathize with the artist in order to provide the public with an emotional, non-didactic message, where the multimedia and interactive nature of the exhibit becomes an integral part of the story and not just an accessory or secondary element.

Visitors will immerse themselves in the labyrinth of the artist’s multifaceted mind. The spectator will be constantly stimulated to utilize all of his or her senses to interact with the Dali Universe, in which the works of art converse with the interactive installations (3D animations, augmented reality, immersive projections) on a tour filled with endless revelations and surprises, that simply must be experienced. As they move through the exhibit, people will discover the various souls of the great master, whose creative contribution is not only associated with surrealistic painting but extends to the most diverse and fertile fields of the twentieth century: from cinema to fashion, from design to advertising, from literature to cuisine, up to and including psychoanalysis, particle physics and new technologies.

Dalì Experience is organized by con-fine Art with the patronage of  Regione Emilia Romagna, Città Metropolitana di Bologna, Comune di Bologna and RAI Radio Televisione Italiana  and the support of QN Quotidiano Nazionale, il Resto del Carlino, La Nazione and Il Giorno.

The catalogue is created by con-fine edizioni, curated by Claudio Mazzanti and Gino Fienga with the artistic direction of Patrizio Ansaloni.
