Hello Dali

If you’re Melbourne, and you like the original crackpot of modern art, start salivating.

Campalans is the engagingly forthright managing director of the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation based in Dali’s home town of Figueres in Catalonia in the north-east of Spain. He arrives in Melbourne next week for the opening of the National Gallery of Victoria’s Winter Masterpiece show Liquid Desire, to which the foundation is providing about half the 200 Dali works on show, with the rest coming from the Dali Museum in St Petersburg, Florida.

While his works of art are certainly entertaining, I find the discussion of his politics (as regards Franco) equally interesting.
