Join Derin Tanyol at 2:30 for a talk on Georges Malkine: Perfect Surrealist Behavior

 The French-American painter Georges Malkine (1898-1970), who lived in Woodstock, NY for a number of decades, was the only visual artist named as a founding member in André Breton’s 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism. Malkine’s work hung at all the major Surrealist exhibitions from 1925-1928 alongside that of Max Ernst, Joan Miro, Giorgio De Chirico, and Man Ray. His first solo exhibition in 1927 at the Galérie surréaliste in Paris was an artistic coup; but instead of reaping the benefits of fame, Malkine skipped town, arriving eventually on American shores.

Proposed for 2013, the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum’s exhibition Georges Malkine: Perfect Surrealist Behavior will be the first major U.S. retrospective of the artist, featuring oils and gouaches by Malkine, as well as drawings, photographs, letters, and writings.

Derin Tanyol, Guest Curator for the WAAM’s Malkine exhibition, is a specialist in French art, culture, and language. She received a Fulbright Scholarship, a  Samuel H. Kress Fellowship, and a Bourse Chateaubriand for two years of research in France.

Dr. Tanyol has published numerous articles and lectured widely on Napoleonic painting and the politics of historical narrative. She was a Visiting Professor at Wesleyan University and also taught at the College of Staten Island and Hunter College, New York. Dr. Tanyol received her Ph.D. in Art History from the Graduate Center, City University of  New York.

See you there!
