Event Details

The Nancy B Negley Association is pleased to announce its new exhibition, LAST. Last is an exhibition in honor of the poets and poems written at the Dora Maar House.

Poetry became one of Dora Maar’s principal means of creative exploration when she was here in Ménerbes. When she was here, she sought time to work and to contemplate, precisely what our artists do when they come here.                    

Dora Maar’s poetry, along with the poems in this exhibition, are often concerned with the language of the eternal, located in the temporal specifics of place. The paradox is that what will last, is often found in what was last, or lost. In her poem, “The Lost Photograph of Dora Maar,” Siobhan Scarry writes, “Surrealist dreams never end.” Perhaps the many poets dreaming in her house make a Möbius strip of poetry spilling out of the stone walls, the sounds, the smells, the light. La Mob decodes the imagination and life of Dora Maar, as well as those of the artists in residence in Ménerbes. The exhibition Last traverses the link between these points in time. In order to animate the juxtaposition and superimposition of past, present and future works, CreativeTech combines scenographic techniques that appeal to different senses. The exhibition will take place from October 28th, 2022, through March 31st, 2023, at La Mob at The Dora Maar House. The opening reception will take place on October 28th at 6PM.
