Museum collections may be curated to showcase styles, media, historical timelines, themes or the life & work of an individual. Built to honor one (extraordinary) person’s vision, talent and life, The Dalí is one such Artist’s Museum.
The Artist’s Museum is grounded in the art, archives and biographical complexity of a single creative individual. Holistic and immersive, each museum is unique in its relation to its artist, but is always an entry into the living breath of the creative process, a laboratory for examining history through an individual life and vision. As such, the Artist’s Museum proposes a challenge and alternative to the usual history of art and the usual experience of the public, while generating enrichment and new understanding.
