Curator Talk: Natalie Dupêcher on Meret Oppenheim’s Surrealist Work

Join Associate Curator of Modern Art Natalie Dupêcher for a close look at the Surrealist paintings, drawings, and objects of Meret Oppenheim. Made in Paris between 1932 and 1936, these works catapulted Oppenheim to international fame. Dupêcher will discuss how Oppenheim forged a path for herself within the Surrealist movement, her friendships with other artists, and the themes she explored in these years, which continued to animate her art practice for another five decades.

About the series:

Curator Talks take place on select Sundays at 3 p.m. Menil curators speak on a single work of art or small group of works currently on display in the museum. These informal, 30-minute-long discussions offer the opportunity to learn more about and engage with artworks in intimate gallery settings.
