Salvador Dali: Liquid Desire

Today after work Mel and I went to the National Gallery of Victoria to see the exhibit Salvador Dali: Liquid Desire. This is the first comprehensive retrospective of Salvador Dali's work ever to be staged in Australia and it brings together more than 200 of his works from throughout his career in all media including painting, drawing, watercolour, etchings, sculpture, fashion, jewellery, cinema and photography.

Dali's style transformed greatly throughout the years. It was almost overwhelming to see and try to digest all the various pieces in the exhibit. I hadn't realized how many different things he was involved in, including working with Alfred Hitchcock and even producing a line of jewellery. My favorite part though was being able to watch the work he did with Walt Disney in 1946 that was turned into the 2003 animated short film "Destino". If you are in Melbourne you should definitely check out the exhibit, which is open until October.
