Past: 'Dada and Anti-Art Movement' Historic Tuesday Talk

The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum

The Dada and Anti-Art Movement will be the focus of the March 19 installment in the “Historic Tuesday Talk” series in the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus. Dr. Joni Hand, associate professor of art history at Southeast, will give the presentation at 7 p.m., which is free and open to the public.

Dada artists questioned their own art making and embraced irony, irreverence, chance and nonsense to create politically and socially charged works of art. This lecture will trace the evolution of Dada and attempt to make sense of the chaos it attempted to define.

The “Historic Tuesday Talk” series takes place at 7 p.m. on select Tuesdays in the Crisp Museum through April 16. The talks consist of short, informational presentations and discussion sessions, and topics include movements, Civil War, World War I, riverboats, railroads, socio-cultural issues, space exploration, regional history, natural resources, fossils, geology and more.

Crisp Museum is located at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus at 518 S. Fountain St., Cape Girardeau, Missouri. For more information, email museum@semo.edu or call (573) 651-2260.
