Surrealism travels from Mexico to NE

By Mario Montalvo/ne news editor

International speaker Dalel Cortés will present Surrealism In Mexico 6:30-8 p.m. in College Hall (NCAB 1111) on NE Campus.

Surrealism refers primarily to a style of painting that gained popularity in the 1920s through artists like Salvador Dalí.

In her presentation, Cortés will discuss surrealism in painting as well as the surrealist movement in everyday life and language, said NE Spanish instructor Jaime Palmer, who has known Cortés for 20 years.

“She’s tying in, not just the arts from Mexico, representing surrealism but also the language, the culture and how we view it,” he said.

Cortés will also talk about Frida Kahlo, whose life some consider strange and surrealistic, Palmer said.

Cortés has organized Spanish-immersion programs in Cuernavaca, Mexico, for college students from the United States and Canada for 20 years, many of which Palmer has attended with TCC students.

She is the owner and executive director of the Instituto Mexicano de Español y Cultura and coordinator and academic advisor of the Spanish department at the Cemanáhuac educational community in Cuernavaca.
