Disney and Dali: Architects of the Imagination
When: January 23, 2016 – June 12, 2016
Where: The Walt Disney Family Museum Admission in San Francisco – Diane Disney Miller Exhibition Hall
What: This immersive and enriching multi-media exhibition will tell the story of the unlikely alliance between two of the most renowned artists of the twentieth century: brilliantly eccentric Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dali and American entertainment innovator Walt Disney.
Curator: Architects of the Imagination is co-organized by The Walt Disney Family Museum and The Dali Museum, with the collaboration of the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation in Figueres, Spain, and The Walt Disney Studios. The exhibition is guest-curated by filmmaker Ted Nicolaou.
Artworks in exhibition: Presented through a multimedia wonderland of original paintings, story sketches, conceptual artwork, objects, correspondences, archival film, photographs, and audio – this comprehensive exhibition showcases two vastly different icons who were drawn to each other through their unique personalities, their collaboration on the animated short Destino – which, regrettably to both Disney and Dali was never completed during their lifetimes – and their enduring friendship.
