Created by Montreal-based company Tandem Expositions, known for their popular 3D exhibitions, this event combines avant-garde technology and illusory experiences to bring Dalí's eccentric world to life. 🖼️🌈
The exhibit is divided into three parts: The Immersive Room, where animated images of Dalí's melting masterpieces surround you; The Mirror Room, a mesmerizing 360-degree setting filled with trippy works; and an educational segment that deepens your understanding of Dalí's art. 🖼️🎭📚
The whole experience lasts approximately 60 minutes and promises to be Montreal's most intoxicating trip this summer. 🌞🌆 No prescription needed for this surreal adventure. 🚀🌌
