Follow the Tangent: Art, Archives and Anecdotes
June 24, 2021
Guest: Peter Tush
Join us on for our bimonthly video podcast featuring members of The Dalí Museum’s curatorial team and other Dalínian and Surrealist scholars. In this episode, we will join Peter Tush, Curator of Education, for an exploration of Dalí’s jewels, including his inspirations for designing jewelry, some of the famous collections of his jewels and a closer look at several of the pieces and their stories.
In this ongoing series, we will delve into the world of art archives and the often-unexpected gems that are uncovered in the course of researching Dalí, Surrealism and the myriad visiting exhibitions hosted at the Museum. From uncovering the origins of specific artworks to identifying inspirations and influences to revealing heretofore untold stories, each interview-style episode will focus on the examination of a different archive artifact and how it offers us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of art history.
