Definitely Dalí: Another Dimension

Seen anything strange recently? Two large Dalí sculptures have spent the summer on Vancouver’s sidewalks as part of Chali-Rosso Gallery’s annual Definitely Dalí exhibit. “Space Venus,” hard to miss at 3.5 m (11 ft) tall, towers over visitors at the corner of West Hastings Street and Hornby until mid-January 2020.  At Thurlow Street and Alberni, “Dalinian Dancer” (pictured) comes to life thanks to augmented reality: download the dedicated app for an uncanny experience. Check out this swirly sculpture at its sidewalk location until Sep. 18, or follow it to Oakridge Centre, where it will be on display from Sep. 19 to Oct. 14 as part of Meet the Masters: From Picasso to Pop Art. Dreaming of more Dalí? Take a peek inside Chali-Rosso Gallery, where over 100 works by the Spanish artist are on display. So surreal.
