“DADA cannot live in New York…”

06 Jul

“…All New York is a DADA and will not support a rival…” writes Man Ray to Tristan Tzara in 1920 at his request of promoting the movement over the Atlantic.


Man Ray’s letter to Tristan Tzara

Tzara’s “Dadaglobe” project, a sort of art social media ahead of its time, not necessarily a brand new idea, never materialized to be published as planned because of financial considerations. But finally all the submitted works were brought in an exhibit at the MOMA celebrating more a group of people ahead of their time, the Paris avant-garde of the beginning of the 20th century. Also, 100 years latter New York is still a DADA.
