Dali’s Happenings with Veruschka, Jonas Mekas and Taylor Mead

In 1964, Salvador Dali did a series of “Happenings” in New York- here’s a kooky one with Jonas Mekas, Taylor Mead and supermodel Veruschka (she looks like an alien today!) Then Dali turns Veruschka into a living sculpture with shaving cream. You know, regular day in NYC.

    Lol! The lovely Señor Dali spray bombing that wall. How beautiful. Whilst in the first part of this one can see the NYC graffiti of the day was still just a name written in an unstylised way. (In a shot of an otherwise blank wall here).

    I tried to meet him once when he lived at the St.Regis. I was fourteen. (Mid 70s). The receptionist told me “Mr. Dali is out to lunch” (without irony).

    Only Salvador Dali could make shaving creme look like a new & brilliant art medium. (More evident in the still shots of Verushka covered in it than one can see in this film). Thank you so much for this! xx
