CABARET FROM DADA TO FLUXUS AND BEYOND WHEN: March 7, 1 to 9 PM WHERE: Zimmerli Art Museum, Hamilton & George Streets, New Brunswick
SYMPOSIUM: 1 to 5 PM
This symposium explores the culture and energy found in Europe's cabarets and cafés during the late-19th and early-20th centuries. Such venues as the Chat Noir in Paris, the Stray Dog in St. Petersburg, the Kadeco in Berlin and the infamous Cabaret Voltaire in Zürich functioned as creative laboratories for artists, journalists, political figures and the general public, igniting some of the most radical artistic movements of the era. An informal reception follows.
Support for this program has been provided from an endowment established by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Phillip Dennis Cate Program Fund.
ART AFTER HOURS: 5 to 9 PM
The invigorating atmosphere of cabaret continues after hours. Programs include a docent-led tour of at/around/beyond: Fluxus at Rutgers, Soprano Gudrun Buehler singing early 20th-century German and French cabaret music, and Meagan Woods and troupe performing Modernist dance movements within the galleries. Visit the website for details.
