'Why and How' at the RA

Join us for an informal, drop-in discussion and share your thoughts about our current ‘Dalí / Duchamp’’ exhibition.

In these book club-style discussions, we open up the floor to conversations about our latest exhibitions. This month we focus on Dalí / Duchamp, an exhibition that throws light on the surprising relationship between 20th-century artists Salvador Dalí and Marcel Duchamp. On the surface, they could hardly be more dissimilar, but Dalí and Duchamp maintained a lasting bond of friendship and mutual admiration throughout their careers.

What fuelled this seemingly unlikely friendship? How did it inspire their work? Why and how do artist collaborations come about? Whether you have already seen the exhibition or are planning to visit on the night, we welcome you to come and hear what others think of the show and share your own views.

Leading this month’s conversation is Harry Baxter, an artist educator who has performed tours, lectures and workshops for the Royal Academy of Arts for over a decade. His artistic practice centres around oil painting and the history of its techniques.

We welcome you to drop into our cosy lounge, the Belle Shenkman Room, to share your views and hear what others think. The bar will be open next door in the Casson Room for drinks and snacks, which you are welcome to bring through. To avoid disrupting others, we will close the door after 7pm, but latecomers are welcome – just come in and join us.
