Modern Poets: Writing Dalí: The Artist's Letters, Poetry, and Manifestos

June 30, 2008
6:30 p.m.

This program showcases a range of Salvador Dalí's provocative and poetic writings, from his opinions on art and popular culture and his well-known explanations of Surrealist practice (including his so-called paranoid-critical method) to unpublished and newly-translated texts. Performers read the artist's poetry, diary entries, musings about New York, letters, interviews, and film scripts, as well as his notorious 1928 Manifest Groc (Yellow Manifesto).
Participants include performance artist Laurie Anderson, former U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Simic, Academy Award nominee David Strathairn and Wooster Group founding member Kate Valk.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Dalí: Painting and Film.
