In conjunction with our Dali/Duchamp special exhibition, we invite you to Games at The Dali. On select Thursdays during the exhibit (February 10–May 27), we celebrate the game playing (and gamesmanship) of Dali and Duchamp, artistic giants and friends who shared a mutual influence, despite many superficial and aesthetic differences. From strategic chess moves to diversions of alter ego creation, these two iconoclasts engaged the world in ways both playful and thoughtful, irreverent and important.
Jennifer Shahade: Duchamp through the 64-Square Looking Glass
We invite you to join us for a fascinating talk about Duchamp and the art of chess from Woman Grandmaster, Jennifer Shahade. Shahade will talk about Dali and Duchamp’s chess connection, explore highlights of Marcel Duchamp’s chess career, while showing some of her own projects inspired by Duchamp, such as Roulette Chess*, Naked Chess and Hula Chess**.
Shahade is a chess champion, commentator, co-author of Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Chess and US Chess Digital Editor. Shahade is also a board member of the World Chess Hall of Fame, a PokerStars Ambassador and author of Play Like A Girl and Chess Bitch.
Cost: Free (parking is free for members as available; $10 parking for non-members)
Location: The Will Raymund Theater (overflow seating available in the Raymond James Community Room)
Supported by the City of St. Petersburg Arts and Culture Grant.
Special thanks to Jennifer Shahade, the US Chess Federation and The Hilton Downtown.
