DMA presents Coco Chanel lecture
Posted by Meg Jones on April 26, 2011 | No Comments »
The Dallas Museum of Art hosts weekly Thursday night lectures, but this week’s topic of discussion particularly caught our eye — Coco Chanel.
Rhonda Garelick, Professor of English at the University of Nebraska and a well-known scholar and writer on performance, literature, fashion, and cultural politics, will explore Coco Chanel’s influence on fashion as well as in literary and artistic circles in Paris.
Why Coco you may ask? Well, five rooms of Chanel’s Mediterranean Villa La Pausa were re-created at the Dallas Museum of Art to house the Wendy and Emery Reves Collection of impressionist, post-impressionist, and modern European art.
The lecture begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free for DMA members.
