Beatrice Wood: Mama of Dada
11.16.13 – 1.12.14
Graphic Arts Gallery

Beatrice Wood created a complex, thoughtful, and inexhaustible oeuvre, working in a variety of media. Dubbed the "Mama of Dada," because of her involvement with the Dada art movement in New York City during the early 20th century, this exhibition features some of her works on paper from the FIA's permanent collection in conjunction with pieces from the collection of Dada expert Francis Naumann.
