Celebrate ‘anti-art’ at Dada Festival

Written by 

art dadaFor three days in September, the first-ever Dada Festival at Western Carolina University brings together music, dance, the visual arts in the spirit of the early 20th-century art movement known as Dadaism.

Dadaism grew from the aftermath of World War I, which fostered a period of disillusionment with the conventions of society that spread to the arts.

Dada Festival events are:

A lecture by visiting scholar Suzanne Churchill, 5 p.m. Sept. 18 in Room 130 of the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.

Dada chamber music concert at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 18 in the Coulter Building recital hall.

A showing of the film, “Games of the Unexpected: Fernand Léger and Dada Spectacle in Paris,” and talk by visiting scholar Anna Vallye at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 19 in Room 130 of the Bardo Arts Center.

Reception and artist’s talk with Carrie Ann Baade at 5 p.m. Sept. 20 at the WCU Fine Art Museum. 

Dada orchestra concert and ballet at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 20 in the Bardo Arts Center 

All events are free and open to the public. The festival is sponsored by the WCU College of Fine and Performing Arts, with collaboration from the Department of English.

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
