ArtCurious at the NCMA: Author Event and Reception featuring Jennifer Dasal

There’s so much more to the art world than museums, fancy galleries, and old men in paint-spattered shirts and berets, and Jennifer Dasal knows that the real gems lie in the stories, especially the ones that never get told. ArtCurious: Stories of the Unexpected, Slightly Odd, and Strangely Wonderful in Art History is art history as you’ve never read it–stories that will shock and entertain, make you question what you thought you knew, and introduce you to unknown characters and hidden histories, conspiracy theories, scandal, and intrigue. Dasal, who is the former curator of modern and contemporary art at the North Carolina Museum of Art, tackles her subjects with humor, lively prose, and thorough research, resulting in a book that’s as informative, eye-opening, and entertaining as her podcast.

Join us for a lively and insightful gallery experience. This event includes an autographed copy of the book, author reading, Q and A, and light refreshments. Please direct all questions to help@ncartmuseum.org.

Jennifer Dasal is the host and creator of the ArtCurious podcast and author of ArtCurious: Stories of the Unexpected, Slightly Odd, and Strangely Wonderful in Art History (Penguin Books, 2020).
