Dali Miami carves up a substantial slice from the prolific repertoire of Salvador Dali, flooding the eyes with more than 200 of the artist’s creations during a five-day celebration. Instantly recognizable for impeccable draftsmanship applied to scenes and objects of weird poignancy and humor, Dali’s oeuvre spawned such oddities-cum-icons as The Persistence of Memory’s melting clocks. While exploring the exhibit’s bountiful collection, art enthusiasts come face-to-face with such treasures as the Venus de Milo with Drawers sculpture, the original Spring Rain canvas, and the full set of Dix Recettes d’Immortalité. Additionally, a continuous showing of the 1929 French film and Buñuel collaboration Un Chien Andalou showcases Dali’s screen prowess and surprising skill at choreographing dance battles.
On March 7, VIP ticketholders accompany their full serving of Dali with sides of special perks, including potently flavored eats prepared by the chef Adrianne Calvo—who has flaunted her skills on the Food Network’s Chopped and appears weekly on NBC’s South Florida Today —and her adeptly Cubist chopping knife. Built in 1921 at the pinnacle of Dali’s own career, the arcades and celestial atrium within the Design District’s historic Moore Building appropriately supplement the galleries with Zaha Hadid’s central, uneasily organic sculpture Elastika.
