Coffee with a Curator - Peter Tush: "Photography and Surrealism"
Wednesday, August 3, 2016
Coffee with a Curator is a focused, theme-oriented presentation on a variety of Dali-related topics. The talk is presented by one of The Dali Museum’s Curatorial/Education team or an invited speaker.
Complementary to our 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 Man Ray, Hans Bellmer, Claude Cahun, Raoul Ubac and Jacques-Andre Boiffard. The talk will conclude with a reflection on the surreal aspects of Horst’s fashion photographs.
