Eclectic Events

The Wolfsonian continues to reign in terms of all things awesome. Case in point, the following event. It takes cerebral cojones to host something like this on South Beach:
Thursday, March 20, 7pm
WORKSHOP: FRENCH SALON GAMES—What were the Parisians doing in their lovely modern interiors in the 1920s? Playing Surrealist games, of course! Join us for an evening of collaborative creation with Paula Harper, associate professor of Art History, University of Miami. RSVP required: 305.535.2644 or julia@thewolf.fiu.edu. $10 for members; $20 all others.

My inner design nerd is super excited about this one:
Thursday, March 27, 7pm
"LE CORBUSIER, THE NEW WOMAN, AND DOMESTIC REFORM"—Mary McLeod, professor of architecture at Columbia University, explores the relationship between Le Corbusier's architecture and the emergence of the New Woman in France in the 1920s. Free to members and students; $10 all others.

And I f'ing LOVE this film:
Thursday, April 3, 7 pm
LES TRIPLETTES DE BELLEVILLE (2003, France/Belgium/Canada/UK, Sylvain Chomet, 80 min, color, French/Portuguese with English subtitles, DVD)—This experimental animated film is set in a whimsical world inhabited by former vaudeville stars and others. Co-presented with Consulat général de France à Miami. Free.
