Conversational Conveniences: Text and Image in Magritte
Tuesday, October 22, 2013, 1:30 p.m.
The René d' Harnoncourt Exhibition Galleries, sixth floor
Magritte, in a 1938 lecture, described his titles as merely “conversational conveniences”; they evoked mystery and poetry of the works without describing them in conventional terms. This session will explore the relationship between text and imagery in Magritte's work.
In conjunction with the exhibition Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926–1938
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
