Professor Robert Barsky will discuss the Beat Generation’s affinity for all things Dada, and he will offer examples from the poetry, the songs, and the general comportment of Allen Ginsberg to show how being “beat” would often overlap with the Dada approach to art and to life. This talk will compliment the Vanderbilt Fine Art Gallery's exhibition THE DADA EFFECT: AN ANTI-AESTHETIC AND ITS INFLUENCE.
The exhibition will be on view through May 27, 2017.
