Beginning with a PowerPoint presentation on Dada history and aesthetics, participants will experience hands-on exploration of painting, poetry, collage and assemblage, while learning how to embrace chance and accident as a means of expanding artistic exploration.

This workshop is being presented as part of the Center’s Centennial Celebration of Dada, as Beatrice Wood, Marcel Duchamp, and other artists in New York, as well as Zurich, were creating important works as part of the Dada Movement in 1917, ultimately having a major impact on art history.
