Join us for this special streaming installment of our Coffee with a Curator series, where Museum Staff or invited guests speak on a range of Dalí-inspired topics.
Curator of Education Peter Tush presents An Introduction to Dalí’s Symbols. It is often stated that Dalí’s puzzling images invite symbolic interpretation and that his symbols are both general and personal. This talk will survey a selection of the most memorable symbols found in Dalí’s art, and demonstrate how he uses these symbols to create a personal language and an iconic brand. From crutches to ants to melting watches, understanding Dalí’s symbols allows a deeper experience of his art. Visit our YouTube channel at 10:30am to discover the rich world of Dalí’s art.
