”Hot Art Exhibition is a series of visualizations following the question: What would happen if there would be no air conditioning during extremely hot summer?” – Alper Dostal
As we know, art galleries and museums are extreme controlled environments that pursue the best ambiance possible to perfectly preserve the art pieces they host. As a response to this, Alper Dostal created a dystopian museum where the artwork simply melted due to the lack of temperature control.
Picasso’s Guernica, Dali’s Persistence of Memory and Edvard Munch’s The Scream are mere examples of the artwork reimagined by Dostal.
Above, we can see A composition with red, yellow and blue (1930) by Piet Mondrian, slowly dripping on the floor.
Edvard Much’s The Scream (1893) being silenced by uncontrolled temperature, only being listened by the museum floor.

René Magritte‘s already nightmarish The Son of Man (1969) transforming into a horror movie poster.
Pablo Picasso‘s Guernica (1937) crying tears of ink to the floor.
The Famous Salvador Dali’s Persistence of Memory brings its forever melting state to the 3-dimensional world.
