A urinal as a sculpture, the Mona Lisa with a mustache, fondest dreams and worst nightmares, a pipe thatâ€™s not a pipeâ€”Marcel Duchamp and the Dadaists challenged the whole of Western culture while Salvador DalÃ, Joan MirÃ³, RenÃ© Magritte, and the Surrealists explored the depths of their dreams.
The 5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series continues through March 12, 2011. Throughout the series, Curator of Education Mariann Smith, Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector, and guest speakers will use the Galleryâ€™s Collection and other selected works to tell the story of art from ancient times through today.Doors for all lectures open at 11 am.
