I dont do drugs. I am drugs, the self-proclaimed genius Salvador Dalí once said. Indeed, no one should expect to go home feeling sober after tonights mind-altering program Writing Dalí: The Artists Letters, Poetry, and Manifesto. Performance artist Laurie Anderson, poet Jorie Graham, former U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Simic, and Wooster Group founding member Kate Valk will channel the madness as they perform a range of his works, including excerpts from his film scripts, his musings on New York, and his provocative 1928 Manifest Groc (Yellow Manifesto). The evening is part of MOMAs summer-long exhibit and performance series, Dalí: Painting and Film.
