A New Take on DAASV’s Happy Hour: Wine(d)down Time!
Mixing after-work “wine time” with art!
Please join us for the DAASV's third event at the famous Pace Gallery. It is a great opportunity to get to know or catch up with your fellow Silicon Valley Dartmouth alums while learning the works of one of the 20th century's most significant artists.
The Pace Gallery in Palo Alto has offered to host Dartmouth alumni for wine and cheese in their Hamilton Avenue gallery - while one of their curators gives us a tour of the spectacular works in their "Seeing Picasso: Maker of the Modern" exhibition.
From Pace's exhibit description:
"In celebration of Pace’s fifth anniversary in Palo Alto, the gallery is pleased to present a chronological survey of Pablo Picasso. The first ever Picasso exhibit in the city, “Seeing Picasso: Maker of the Modern” focuses on the artist’s many innovations and protean practice. Ceaselessly creating art for over seven decades, Picasso shattered artistic conventions in the pursuit of revolutionary styles and formal strategies. This exhibition, spanning the late 1890s to the early 1970s, highlights Picasso’s key breakthrough moments, which catalyzed much of the modern era. Drawn from a number of private collections including the Picasso family, it showcases over thirty-five masterpieces in a range of media—paintings, works on paper, sculptures, and ceramics—from each stage of Picasso’s highly prolific career, including his early Blue Period, reinterpretations of African and Oceanic forms, groundbreaking invention of Cubism, and experimentation with Surrealism and early Neo-Expressionism. “Seeing Picasso: Maker of the Modern” reveals that Picasso—perhaps more than any artist—not only channeled the spirit of the 20th century but also significantly altered the course of modern art."
The exhibit is accompanied by a visual audio guide by Stanford’s Alex Nemerov.
Come join your fellow Dartmouth alums, enjoy Pace’s hospitality - and be prepared to learn and celebrate Picasso!
