Dorothy Keller Lecture — Unleashing the Dream: Salvador Dalí and Surrealism

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) remains one of the most enigmatic, controversial, prolific artists of the twentieth century. His unique works reveal an intense interest and experimentation with a variety of artistic movements including Cubism, Futurism, Metaphysical Painting, Surrealism, etc.

In 1929 Dalí became interested in Surrealism and created a new method of approach which he defined as "paranoic-critical activity." He employed visionary experiences, interpretation, memory, dreams, accident, distortion, etc. within his works. He pushed ideas to the limit.

Explore, and unveil the creative, unique, and imaginative ideas that Dalí has to offer in a galley tour and discussion with Professor Dorothy Keller, Art History Program, University of Saint Joseph.
