From London 1978 to New York 2006

Representing Dada
Saturday, September 9, 2006

To mark the close of the international Dada exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, in collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art, New York, MoMA hosted a day-long symposium to consider issues involved in representing Dada through texts, images, and objects, with a particular focus on the semantics of display. A distinguished group of scholars discussed landmark Dada exhibitions and past publications, with the aim of addressing how Dada has been defined historically, geographically, and conceptually.
