Dalton State To Host Dada Manifesto Reading

Monday, March 19, 2018

Dr. Marjorie Yambor, an associate professor of communication at Dalton State, will read from her Dada manifesto, “The Spirit of ’16: A Dada Manifesto in Support of Subversive Supremacy,” on Monday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. in Derrell C. Roberts Library’s media lab. 

"Much like the Dada art movement of the early 1900s,  Dr. Yambor seeks provocation, subversion and inspiration wherever she can," officials said.

The Dada movement began in 1916 in a beer parlor in Zurich, Switzerland. It featured subversive art, demonstrations and manifestos which were expressions of revolt of the individual against art, morality, and society. Dadaism promotes free thinking for art and life. Yambor’s work explores and celebrates 100 years of Dadaism. 

“Our goal is to provide a stimulating environment that will empower our community of learners to discover and engage with the world’s collected knowledge,” said Melissa Whitesell, director of the library. “We want to encourage critical and imaginative thinking and creative artistic expression.” 

The event is free and open to the public.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA.
