  • This event has passed.

Thanks for your interest, all 100 seats have been reserved

Enjoy a first-look at the very limited-time exhibition “Andrei Codrescu: Avida Dollars.” Helen Wallace (soon to be ‘Poet Laureate of St. Petersburg’) will lead a conversation with Mr. Codrescu about recent projects & poetry. The talk begins at 6:30pm in the Raymond James Community Room.

Café Gala will be open for cash-bar & food.

About Andrei Codrescu:
Born in Sibiu, Romania and naturalized American, Andrei Codrescu writes poetry, novels, memoirs, essays and screenplays, defying the conventions of all five. Among his surreal work: Bibliodeath: My archives (With Life in Footnotes); The Posthuman Dada Guide: Tzara and Lenin Play Chess, The Disappearance of the Outside: a Manifesto for Escape and The Life & Times of an Involuntary Genius. In 1983, he founded Exquisite Corpse, a Journal of Books & Ideas in Baltimore; that same year he began a stint with NPR’s All Things Considered as a commentator on art and politics. His lecture “How Salvador Dali Smuggled Baudelaire into the Science Fair” was published by The Dali Museum as a book in 2007.

About The Exhibit:
This exhibition, “Andrei Codrescu: Avida Dollars,” is part of our collaboration with USFSP in conjunction with Codrescu’s USFSP lecture “Avida Dollars – Art is the New Currency.” “Avida Dollars” is Codrescu’s postcard project for The Dali. The phrase “Avida Dollars” refers to the chiding anagram Andre Breton made of Dali’s name, with the Catalan artist turned into a symbol of creativity.

Codrescu has been sending The Dali weekly postcards from his farm in the Ozarks in Arkansas. He sent 21 postcards to the Museum over a 6 month period. These postcards will be enlarged for viewing both sides, select cards will be on display along with copies of Codrescu’s book, How Salvador Dali Smuggled Baudelaire Into the Science Fair.

The postcards feature incidental images of people, places and activities in Codrescu’s native Romania. Some are minimally modified with decorative stickers, comments or images of with collaged figures like Miles Davis, with decorative and ironic stamp subjects. The authorial voice of the messages shifts between Codrescu, Dali, Brancusi and others. The messages are often droll, bland, or cryptic statements addressed to Dali, his wife Gala or some imaginary recipient concerning Codrescu’s past and ongoing activities.

The exhibition opens Friday evening 9/25 (at event) and runs through Sun 9/27 5:30pm.
