Dada at Moma
Noel and I went to the new Museum of Modern Art for the first time together on Saturday to see the great new temporary exhibit of Dada art from the 1910’s and 20’s. I’ve always been drawn to Dadaism, mostly for its whimsy (see, for example, the Marcel Duchamp Bicycle Wheel to the left). But I’d never before realized how much class and young leftist outrage fueled the Dadaist movement. The whole the thing was moving in a way I had not expected.
