Cauliflowers Come Out to Celebrate Dali Anniversary
- 100th birthday party at the South Bank and Trafalgar Square

A BIG relaunch of the Dali Experience on London's South Bank is underway today, the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth.

New exhibits are being unveiled at the Experience including a greater use of interactive element, haute couture pieces and theatrical performances. To celebrate today's anniversary, the show will go on the road as a limo stuffed with cauliflowers is due to drive to Trafalgar Square, recalling a famous Dali stunt.

The choice of the square is apposite as it was there in 1936 that the surrealist art movement, of which Dali was a leading exponent, first attacked London. Dali collaborator Sheila Legge stood by the fountains, her head turned into a giant rose, holding what appeared to be a real, dismembered leg.
