Talking about Elliott King, Guest Curator for High Museum's Dali Exhibit
The exhibit is outstanding as we've written about in previous articles -- you must go see it while it's here in Atlanta. This is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to see works from so many diverse locations all under one roof.
If you get to hear King talk about the works at any of the numerous film showings or other public offerings you will be doubly amazed! He is truly a Dali scholar and we think the High made the perfect choice with King as guest curator.
On our Twitter note we said King was "dapper"... We thought we'd share a couple of photos and let you decide whether calling him dapper was the right description. Oh, we also said he was very cool. Love the glasses, love the shoes, the hankie in the pocket... We have a bio of King somewhere, gonna have to dig it up for you. He's worth an article all on his own.
(If you go to the article you'll find the official press release from the High on the exhibit on the same page, PLUS a slide show. We're going back again, and maybe again, and again...)
Here's another article (we may have to make a special trip on Delta just to fly on this airplane!):
