Dry those suspiciously globular tears! Man Ray Day is almost upon us. On Saturday, August 21, the University of Virginia Art Museum will celebrate the artist (almost exactly 120 years after his birth as Emmanuel Radnitzky) in conjunction with its current exhibition, “Man Ray, African Art, and the Modernist Lens,” which explores the role of photography in changing the perception of African objects from artifacts to fine art. Festivalgoers will be able to create their own Ray-o-graphs, play around with Polaroid portraiture, and make masks and gourd instruments, all to the tribal beats of the Charlottesville Community Drum Choir, who will be performing African drumming and dance. Meanwhile, in a nod to Man Ray’s Surrealist years, there will be French accordion music and French language games (Cadavre Exquise, anyone?). Exhibition tours and food will round out the offerings, so cross your fingers for Dadaist delights…fur teacupcakes, perhaps.
