Exhibition design for Gala Dalí, the surrealist muse at Château des Baux-de-Provence.
Gala Dalí, born Elena Ivanovna Diakonova (7 September 1894 – 10 June 1982) in Russia, usually known simply as Gala, was the wife of poet Paul Éluard and later of artist Salvador Dalí, who were both prominent in surrealism. She was an important figure of the movement herself and inspired many other writers and artists.
The Château des Baux-de-Provence hosted an amazing exhibition about this wonderful artist and model who played a fundamental role in Salvador Dalí’s career.
République Studio took care of all the art direction and exhibition design, from the signage to the poster and brochure.
This exhibition was organized and produced by Culturespaces. Curating and texts by Marc Ernest Fourneau. Translations by Isabelle Eeman. Printing and installation by Atelier Shl. The typefaces are Saol Display by Schick Toikka and Söhne by Klim Type Foundry.
