The Dali Museum's Coffee with the Curator: Surrealism + Photography
Aug. 3, 2016
Complementary to the Dali's current exhibition, Horst: Photographs - Fashion and Surrealism, Curator of Education Peter Tush discusses Surrealism and its relationship with photography. This talk will examine the role of photography within the revolutionary Surrealist Movement, shifting between documentation and the subversion of bourgeois values, and will survey the contributions of key surrealist photographers such as Many Ray, Hans Bellmer, Claude Cahun, Raoul Ubac and Jacques-André Boiffard. A reflection on the surreal aspects of Horst's fashion photographs will conclude the talk. Join the FREE event in the Community Room at the Dali Museum in downtown St. Pete from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.
