Teresa Arcq, a noted art historian and curator of the work of women Surrealists and Mexican modernism, will deliver NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale's Annual Stanley and Pearl Goodman Lecture on Latin American Art on Thursday, November 21 at 6 PM. Her talk, titled Leonora Carrington in Mexico: The Mirror of the Marvelous, will examine the influence of Mexico on the work of the legendary Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917 - 2011), an enigmatic figure whose paintings feature evocative dreamlike imagery and symbolism.
