Coffee with a Curator: The Genius Behind the Mask

Wednesday, Sep. 04, 10:30–11:30am
  • This event has passed.

Coffee with a Curator is a focused, theme-oriented presentation on a variety of Dali-related topics. The talk is presented by one of The Dalí Museum’s Curatorial/Education team or an invited speaker.

The Genius Behind the Mask: Dalí’s Soft Self-Portraits
Join Denisse De Leon, Dalí Museum School Education Manager, for a survey of Salvador Dalí’s self-portraits, from his earliest mannerist characters through his Surreal narcissistic imagery to his mature role as performer/”artist.” For an artist who filtered his life through his art, surprisingly little study has been devoted specifically to his self-portraits. By analyzing Dalí’s evolving presentation of self in relation to theories of artistic self-portraiture, De Leon will provide new insight and reveal unfamiliar aspects of Dalí’s art.

Cost: Free (parking is free for members as available; $10 parking for nonmembers)
Location: Raymond James Community Room (overflow seating available in the Will Raymund Theater)

 

Supported by AARP Tampa Bay, the City of St. Petersburg Arts and Culture Grant and Café Gala.

If someday I may die, though it is unlikely, I hope the people in the cafés will say, ‘Dalí has died, but not entirely.’ – Salvador Dalí
