Jordi Falgàs's Course on Miró and Dalí at Stanford University

The course Peripheral Dreams: The Art and Literature of Miró, Dalí, and Other Surrealists in Catalonia spans from the artists' origins to their cultural context in Catalonia at the time, focusing on their manifestations' environment and reception. The course will also feature surrealist artists and writers, such as J.V. Foix and the Logicofobistes, as well as photography and film. Artists who were foreign to Catalonia but influenced the Catalan masters (Calder, Lorca, Buñuel, Breton, and Crevel) will also play a role in this course.

Jordi Falgàs (1964) has a PhD in Art History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Barcelona. He worked to bring the exhibition Barcelona & Modernity: Picasso, Gaudí, Miró, Dalí (2006-2007) to the Cleveland Museum of Art and to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. From 1996 to 2003, Falgàs served as adjunct manager for the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation and curated Casa Vicens d'Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona as well as the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Girona.

Stanford University's Catalan Studies are housed under the Department of Iberian and Latin American Cultures and Comparative Literature, which is directed by the prestigious academic Joan Ramon Resina. Since its foundation in 2007, the program has pushed to advance Catalan research and studies with eminent professors such as Xavier Antich, Margalida Pons, Antoni Martí Monterde, and, more recently, Salvador Cardús.

This fall, Jordi Falgàs is teaching a course on Miró and Dalí at Stanford University. This seminar housed within Institut Ramon Llull's Catalan Studies program at Stanford will focus on the art and literature of Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí.
