Went to the Dali expo in Wanha Satama.

A sales show, with prices ranging from ~2000 euros to “please inquire”. Around 200 paintings or equivalent and a dozen or so sculptures.

Selection is eccentric. Some famous paintings (Voltaire’s bust), but mainly series: 12 tribes of Israel and Dante’s Inferno. Of which the latter had some excellently disconcerting images.

Finnair frequent flyer card would’ve gotten two people in for the price of one. Too bad the lobby was deserted when I went in. The program is not expo-specific (Dali’s life condensed to 20 pages – no art depicted), and definitely not a steal at 10 euros. But the expo itself is worth the amount.
