Salvador Dalí’s Surrealism of the Tiny

When: 
Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 6:00pm

Roger Rothman, Samuel H. Kress Professor of Art History, Bucknell University

Rothman’s lecture will explore Dalí’s fascination with all things tiny – both the literally tiny (ants, sewing needles, breadcrumbs, blackheads) and the metaphorically tiny (the trivial, the weak, the superficial, the anachronistic). Dalí has long been a controversial figure among scholars of modern art and Rothman’s lecture will examine the ways in which Dalí’s “tininess” courted such controversy.
