Art Deco Lecture Series: \“The Devil Wears Dada\”


Saturday, April 12 – 2:00 PM

ADSLA Lecture Series Presents

"The Devil Wears Dada" -- "Who's Your Dada?"
You'll know for certain when you attend this highly entertaining and provocative lecture, presented by the Art Deco Society and the American Cinematheque. "The Devil Wears Dada" offers a focused survey of Dadaism and Surrealism, and their effect on costume and fashion during the Art Deco era. Lecturer Aaron Rubin will present images of the absurd in both fine art and fashion to paint a fascinating picture of an unusual collaboration between the arts.

This lecture was first presented at the 2007 Queen Mary Art Deco Festival, and has been brought back by popular request. Mr. Rubin's engaging style of speaking and extensive collections of images, coupled with careful research and a personal flare for the dramatic bring this bohemian era and its vivid personalities - - and ground-breaking artistic sensibilities - - alive. Aaron M. Rubin is an Art History major at California State University Northridge. He has been avidly studying the history of art, culture, fashion, and jewelry from a very young age, and he is a member of various historical societies. Mr. Rubin is currently employed at Bonhams & Butterfields auction house.

Tickets are $5 for members of ADSLA and American Cinematheque members. Regular American Cinematheque prices apply for the general public and students/seniors and may be pre-purchased at, or purchased on the day of the event at the door.
