Lecture

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.

Paul Barnes: Guest Piano Recital/Lecture

When: 
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 1:00pm

Praised by The New York Times for his “Lisztian thunder and deft fluidity,” and the San Francisco Chronicle as “ferociously virtuosic,” pianist Paul Barnes has electrified audiences worldwide with his intensely expressive playing and cutting-edge programming. Barnes has recorded 12 CDs and this year celebrates his 23-year collaboration with Philip Glass. Inspired by the untimely passing of many of his closest friends, Dr. Barnes will explore the profound musical treatment of love and death in the music of Glass, Franz Liszt and ancient Byzantine chant.
