Provocations on Paper: Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí in NYC

Jordana Mendelson, Director, King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center

This lecture explores how Miró and Dalí were promoted by their New York dealers, and how their approaches to the design and distribution of the ephemera that accompanied their exhibitions ultimately correlated to differences in their critical fortunes, especially as related to their paired exhibitions at the MoMA in 1941. Miró and his dealer Pierre Matisse represent a craftsman’s concern with paper and the prestige of a well-made publication; Dalí and his dealer Julien Levy represent a much closer connection with the surrealist use of and interest in ephemera. Both artists brought to their experiences in NYC the European avant-garde’s fascination with paper as a tool for promotion and controversy.
