These Dali Movies ROCK ---

Un Chien Andalou (1929).
The famous surrealistic movie by:
Director: Luis Buñuel & Producers: Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel


Destino (1946)
Dali's Disney Film 'Destino' Project, Abandoned in 1946, Brought to Life Again in 2002

In 1946, Salvador Dali and Walt Disney planned a cartoon together. But the short subject Destino was left unfinished after Disney and its partner, RKO, decided it probably wouldn't make any money. Also Disney and Dali were at odds with each other as to who was the
creative authority. Dali departs Disney Studios and the project silenced for more than 50 years. And just a few short years ago Disney's nephew Roy Disney, who now heads the company's animation division, decided to revive the project.
Destino is a six-minute film set to a Mexican song, devoid of dialogue and without a clear story line. It follows a dark-eyed ballerina on a journey among strange objects through a desert landscape in a dreamlike atmosphere. Much in the same manner as Fatasia

also the Hollogram of Alice Coopers Brain !

Pandy ,, as a pistol packing MOD I am careful in what I say

never fear , John... anytime a moderator is in a debate and there is questionable content on that thread, a second moderator is always asked to make the calls to preserve objectivity.
I'd never ban anyone I was debating (even if they WERE breaking rules).

....and I'll keep the magnum safely tucked away
I enjoy debating with someone as knowledgeable as you, even if we sometimes disagree.

The only guy to ever Freak Out Alice Cooper. I think I especially love (I think it's called) "Swans Reflecting Elephants" If you look at the picture like a clock, then at about 9:30, you can see Dali standing there with his hands in his pockets at a side view. It's so cool. Very trippy dude, indeed!

When I was in high school I was introduced to Dali. The dripping clocks was the first but of his work that I have seen the painting of Christ on the Cross touches my heart. Have not done much research on him but this has given me food for thought. Thank you.

I wish this thread can be kept alive ,,,,,,,,,
Seems that Bajajohn was removed from forums
and since then this thread and wonderful contributions
have since vanished ... As we might wait for his suspension
to be lifted I hope others will take charge and write on Dali ..

Of my favorite paintings from Dali--
Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus
Eggs on a plate without a plate
The Disappearing bust of Vlotaire and
The Geoploiticus Child

In grade three, my class to a trip to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. While the rest of the class was wandering around looking at some sort of stuffed animal display, I stood in front of Dali's Santiago El Grande ~ completely transfixed. (The gallery actually owns the painting ~ not sure how that happened). It was the first piece of art that really hit me and spoke to small corners in myself that only art speaks to. I've been back to see it several times and it still has the same effect. My housemate had to drag me away this summer when we'd gone to see the Rodin exhibit.

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned here ~ kinda skimmed the posts ~ but Dali also did an amazing Tarot set. Not to my liking for proper use, but I'd still love to have the set ~ when I can afford it. A friend got it for Yule some 10 years ago and it was over $100 then....

Got to go to the Dali museum in St. Pete's last time I was in Florida. I was in heaven. It was incredible. It was the reason I went the Gulf Coast way instead the East Coast way that I usually go. Well worth it. I want to go back.

The Oil Painting of the Last Supper

is at the National Galleries in Washington DC

It is a wonderful gift of Mr Chester Dale

He also gave the Corpus Hypercubus to the Metropiltan Museum of Art in NYC..

these are part of a series of paintings called MASTERWORKS

( a Masterwork is defined as : A painting that measures over 5 feet in any one direction and intellectually consumes the Artist from concept to comepltion for more than one year ---- some were nearly two year projects )

part of 18 paintings done over a 21 year period...

both the above are from the first 5 where Dali is consumed with Christianity...

AT this time March 2007 - June 2007

the Dali Museum has a special exhibit on The Spanish Baroque ...

many of the works that insipre DALI,,,

Velasquez .......... is the main focus amazing to see both Masters side by side.............

Major Dali fan here as well. If you like his stuff you'll probably like M.C. Escher as well, some rather funky work that I really love.

M.C. Escher is great !
I have researched for hours looking for the connection
between Dali and Escher --
None existed ............
I had thought (wished) that given
both lived at the same times and in relatively the
same part of Europe that they had some contact...
Dali never mentioned Escher as an artist or inspiration
as he was very prolific in writings and word -- this was a sad discovery...
However - I need to believe that BOTH were aware of each others work
the time line , and metamorphic similarities are too close

Few years back Dali's exbit came threw Philly
It was record breaking~
Wish I had gone more then once.But it was sold out days in advance.
For me veiwing at his early work,when he was younger in Spain ,
was really beatiful and inspiring.
It was the Western world that seemed to bring out the devil in him

Performer Schedule (11:00am - 8:00pm)

11:00 - Indo Flamenco Fusion: Nandkishor Muley & Fuego Flamenco
India meets Spain in this world fusion of Indian & Flamenco music led by Nandkishor Muley, the remarkable Grammy-award winning Maestro of the Santur (South Asian hammered dulcimer). Traveling from Germany for this event, Muley begins the performance accompanied by WMNF's Eluv on tambura. It continues with a performance by the fiery Sarasota Flamenco trio Fuego Flamenco (Tahja, Juan de la Sierra and Jeff Lloyd), concluding with an Indo Flamenco fusion involving all participants. A magical event not to be missed! (75 minutes)

12:45 - Rayzilla's PBS
Both whacked and sublime, a stew of world music, pop songs, and jazz fusion, all with a hint of insanity, from the mind of WMNF's Rayzilla. Performers include Jim Beckwith, Alfredo Rivero, Matt Cowley and Jeremy Powell. Rayzilla's set will feature his notorious Dalí homage, "I am Not Mad," and the eventual mega hit, "Bomb." (60 min)

2:15 - Infinite Groove Orchestra
Saxophonist Jeremy Powell leads this earthy quartet through "danceable grooves and diverse musical themes, featuring syncopated, beat-a-licious jams and mind-expanding improvisation." Weekly Planet. With influences from Miles Davis to Funkadelic to Fela Kuti, you know this will be hot. (45 min)
[Shim, originally scheduled for this time slot, is unable to attend]

3:30 - Sam Rivers Trio
Legendary Grammy-nominated jazz musician, Rivers has been a part of the history of jazz, working with musicians from Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, to avant-garde figures like Cecil Taylor and Anthony Braxton. He has since gone on to forge a personal vocabulary and leads one of the outstanding jazz trios in the world. This will be the righteous event of the season.
The Sam Rivers Trio performance is co-sponsored by the Emit Series of Adventurous Music. (60 min)

5:00 - Gravy (w/ Ronnie Dee)
Intense powerhouse funk horn band featuring one of the hardest grooves found anywhere in the Tampa Bay area, brought to you by local impresario Ronnie Dee. (60 min.)

6:30 - Bogus Pomp
World-renowned Frank Zappa repertoire band formed in 1994 by Jerry Outlaw and Rick Olson. Musicians include an unlikely combination of educators, symphony players, jazzers, and rockers, all with a common interest in Zappa's music. After 12 years, they are the tightest band around, and they blew people's minds at the 2006 Zappanale Festival in Germany. Come and have your mind blown as well! (90 min.)

Two New Shows At The Dali Museum St Pertersburg Florida
Posted: 6/29/2007 9:21:34 AM
Dali in Focus
Through January 2008
Morse Galleries

Encounter Dalí in depth through a selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection displayed with a focus on the hidden details. The exhibit will showcase various periods from his early 1900s to 1980s and seven works will receive a closer examination for Dalí's particular blend of personal interpretation. Assisted by dynamic visual aids and illustrated panels, the paintings will be interpreted section-by-section to analyze the dreams, desires and memories that inspired the work. Curated by Joan Kropf, Curator of the Collection.

June 22 – September 23, 2007

Traces Gallery

St. Petersburg has been home of the most comprehensive collection of Salvador Dalí’s works in America for 25 years. One may wonder, how did this revered collection come to be? This cultural treasure is the result of A. Reynolds and Eleanor R. Morse’s 45 year friendship with Salvador and Gala Dalí starting with their first acquisition, Daddy Longlegs of the Evening…..Hope! A meticulous archive from the Morses' research, anecdotes, travel logs, photographs and receipts of purchase has allowed us to uncover our paintings' unique provenance histories, from the hands of the artist to their current home in our Museum. Curated by Elen Woods, Assistant Curator.

Two New Shows At The Dali Museum St Petersburg Florida
Posted: 6/29/2007 1:28:03 PM
Thank you for taking the time to enlighten us. I have been to your museum and it really did give me a new understanding of just how great Dali was a technical painter and an innovator. my visit to your Music did change my views on Dali.
Pandy, You really should take up papajohns offer. I have an idea that your view of Dali has been tainted by all the fakes and frauds that are still floating around. The sad thing is that many people still have these pieces and still think they are worth a lot of money. Like You I have been in the Gallery bussiness for many years. I can't tell you how many times someone has come into the gallery offering to sell me an original Dali print. They are under some impression that the print they bought for $1500.00 is now worth $25,000.00 or more. It is really sad.
I Happen to love original Lithographs and etchings. Like you I encourage people to buy work of living breathing artist. Many local and regional artist are producing excellent work. You can often find good work for a few hundred.

Salvidor Dali....haven't thought about him for awhile. There is so much great art out there and so many artists that launched a million ideas. Dali definetely moved mountains. There were a series of photographs of him with a crooked cane and of course his trade mark moustache. His eccentric personality was captured perfectly. I rememeber those most and of course his melting clocks. Yes he was a genius.
