Carrières de Lumières

Dalí, the endless enigma

Produced by Gianfranco Lannuzzi, Renato Gatto, Massimiliano Siccardi with the musical collaboration of Luca Longobardi. 

This year, the Carrières de Lumières will be illuminated with the famous and singular works of Salvador Dali. From Surrealist landscapes to iconic works, the immersive exhibition spans over 60 years of creation by the great Catalan master. This retrospective, set to the legendary music of Pink Floyd, takes you on a timeless journey that will awaken the sub-conscious and hold a mirror up to the workings of the painter’s mind.

Short programme:

Gaudi, Architect of the imaginary

Produced by Cutback and Gianfranco Lannuzzi 

Set out on a voyage between dreams and reality, from Parc Guëll to Casa Batllo via Casa Milà and the Sagrada Familia. Through the interplay of lights and materials, the walls of the Carrières de Lumières take on the shape of hyperbolic arches, oblique pillars, undulating façades decorated with organic motifs and glass and ceramic mosaics.
