“Everything is Dada” at the Yale University Art GalleryYale University Art Gallery, 1111 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT Friday,Feb 12 to Sunday,Jul 3
Celebrating the centennial of the birth of Dada, this special exhibition brings together major works from the collection by modern artists including Jean (Hans) Arp, Marcel Duchamp, George Grosz, Francis Picabia, Man Ray, Kurt Schwitters, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, and Beatrice Wood. In 1916 a group of young men and women from across Europe came together in Zurich and shook the foundations of the art world. Firmly pacifist and anti-hierarchical, these artists questioned established norms and academic traditions and created paintings, drawings, sculptures, and performance pieces that blurred the line between fine and applied arts.
