Dreaming of Dali Redux


I didn’t dream it up. We covered Dali before, in 2003, when ICA Curator Ingrid Schaffner spoke at Swarthmore about her then-new book, “Dali’s Dream of Venus.” Schaffner’s book chronicled the Surrealist’s lobster- and weirdness-infused pavilion at the 1939 World’s Fair. Imagine that! See post in which contributor Ann Northrup reports on Schaffner’s talk, comparing Dali’s P.T. Barnum-esque personality with contemporary artists like Matthew Barney, Damien Hirst and more. What reminded me of this is that the ICA curator will give a talk about her book next week Wednesday, Feb. 23, at 5 pm at Penn as part of the Penn Humanities Council. Sign up at the Penn website if you want to go. The talk’s in Logan Hall and seating is limited.
