Yay! I got to a museum before the exhibit closes! It’s bad for me to write that… but I know when I had a big brain tumor, I did not get out much. I am happy now to be feeling better and getting to see art again. I’ve really missed it! So, today I drove myself down to The Dali Museum for a great exhibit, Dali/Duchamp, about his rapport with premium artist Marcel Duchamp.
Duchamp really was a pioneer at that time. No one else had really attempted to simplify art literally. And now if someone did something similar, it would just feel like a Duchamp copy. Duchamp started his work with Dali in Surrealism. They continued to stay in touch, even though their artwork took different paths. Don’t forget — Duchamp created the art called Dada. It was also great to go and see items I haven’t seen since living in Paris back in 1995-96. It got my brain moving again.
Of course, taking photos in the museum is not allowed. But, of course, I did anyway when no one was looking. Here are a few of the great items included in this exhibit:
I also took more pictures inside and outside the museum. They have a great garden area with a labyrinth. And a friend of mine, Chad Mize, designed the t-shirts they are offering for this exhibit.
