After visiting Calatrava’s PATH-station Oculus in New York this summer it was inevitable that we also had to visit Calatrava’s railwaystation Liège-Guillemins
There was a great opportunity in a short autumn-holyday when we could combine the railwaystation with the exhibition of Salvador Dali in the EXPO of the station.
The picture symbolise the meeting of Salvador with Santiago.

Salvador Dal in Liège
Dalí as you've never seen him before
A groundbreaking exhibition which seeks to promote Dalí’s artistic, cultural and intellectual undertakings. This bold endeavour will be a complete work of art in itself as every visitor will be plunged into a world of fantasy, both fascinating and unique.
An exhibition for everyone
As the title suggests, the main theme of the exhibition is the changing identities of Dalí: Salvador the child, Salvador Dalí one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century and then lastly Dalí the eccentric media darling.
A fascinating journey
A colourful evocation conjured up by a walking circuit of over 2000m² all designed around the flamboyant genius of this enduring artist with universal appeal. A stroll with amazing surprises and enchanting discoveries around every corner which are certain to leave no visitor unmoved. (website EXPO)
