Marvels of Illusion

June 14, 2014 – October 12, 2014

Marvels of Illusion offered a sensational optical and intellectual experience delving into the world of double images and illusions. The special exhibition showcased a variety of Dali paintings, prints and sculpture; a special work from the 16th Century from the School of Arcimboldo, on loan from the Ringling Museum; and rich explanatory material.

The centerpiece of Marvels of Illusion was an interactive installation titled “Gala Contemplating You” which places visitors inside one of Dali’s most famous paintings. The installation was inspired by Dali’s 1976 painting “Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea Which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln (Homage to Rothko),” which proved that 121 pixels could identify a particular human face. A corresponding web application still allows virtual visitors from around the globe to submit their photos and take part of the experience.
