Surrealism Then, Now: Snapshots of Critically Engaged Art: Inside the Magnetic Fields: Surrealism at 100

Conference/Symposium | November 16 | 2-5 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall

 The Program in Critical Theory

Presented by University of California, Berkeley’s Consortium on Surrealism @100 (organized by UC Berkeley’s Program in Critical Theory).

This afternoon symposium and discussion–organized by UC Berkeley’s Program in Critical Theory– will feature two panels of literary and cultural critics who’ll reconsider Surrealism: its histories, its afterlives, and its resonances in art and politics today. Participants will offer brief presentations that rethink the work of surrealist and surrealist-influenced art in Europe; in the Caribbean and elsewhere in the Americas; and in North Africa. The symposium will also involve extensive discussion among the panelists and audience. Panelists from UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, and Cornell University will include Catherine Flynn, Donna V. Jones, Robert Kaufman, David Marriott, Natalie Melas, Soraya Tlatli, and Nathaniel Wolfson.

This event is co-sponsored with City Lights Bookstore and The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
