The Kingdom of Bahrain continues its campaign of cultural messages with a tribute to Salvador Dal? on the Jordan Ford EJ14 cars at the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend.
The Gala-Salvador Dal? Foundation is marking the centenary of Salvador Dal?'s birth near Barcelona (11 May 1904) with "Dal? Year 2004", a celebration of the Spanish avantgarde artist's work. Barcelona currently hosts a major exhibition at the Caixa Forum called "Cultura de Masses" which forms the centrepiece of the celebration of the Dal? year 2004 in the Catalan Region and exhibits Dal?`s adoption of mass culture as a major influence of his works.
The Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation was set-up by the artist himself in 1983 to protect the artistic, cultural and intellectual qualities of his work throughout Spain and the rest of the world. Salvador Dali was President of the foundation up until his death in 1989 and now the foundation is run by a board of trustees appointed by The Government of Spain and Catalonia. Princess Cristina of Spain has been a life-long trustee since 1998. The Foundation is based in Figueres near Barcelona, the town of Dal?'s birth.
