Libros Schmibros Book Club
Libros Schmibros co-directors David Kipen and Colleen Jaurretche lead monthly convenings focused on books related to the exhibition A Strange Magic: Gustave Moreau’s Salome.
This month’s book:
Fleurs du Mal/Flowers of Evil: The origins of modern poetry were here in the decadent, erotic poetry of Baudelaire. Banned on publication, these poems opened up the conversation about sex and death for the last half of the 19th century, and helped make the inner life a suitable subject for art. (Dover dual-language edition)
ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE.
Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00pm.
Part of the curatorial department, the Public Engagement program collaborates with artists to develop and present works that create an exchange among the artist, the museum, and the visitor. Enacted both inside and outside the galleries, Public Engagement projects range from re-envisioned security guard uniforms to library and orchestra residencies. Public Engagement was established in 2009 thanks to a James Irvine Foundation Arts Innovation Fund grant.
