Beginning with Dadaglobe Reconstructed guest curator Adrian Sudhalter’s own research on Tristan Tzara’s unrealized Dadaglobe anthology, this program features several case studies that explore the reconstruction of modernist works that were either never realized, lost, destroyed, or inherently ephemeral. Other participants include ballet reconstructionists Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer; artist Josiah McElheny; and William Whitaker, Curator and Collections Manager, Architectural Archives, University of Pennsylvania School of Design. Maria Gough, Joseph Pulitzer, Jr. Professor of Modern Art, Department of the History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University, moderates.

Tickets for this program will be available beginning August 13. Tickets ($15; $10 members and corporate members; $5 students, seniors, and staff of other museums) can be purchased online or at the information desk, at the Film desk after 4:00 p.m., or at the Education and Research Building reception desk on the day of the program.

This event accompanies Dadaglobe Reconstructed.
