MARCEL DUCHAMP: A DEFINITIVE BIOGRAPHY
Marcel Duchamp (American, born France. 1887-1968)
His proposition that art could be about ideas instead of objects was a revolutionary notion that still resonates with artists today.
Associated with Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism, Duchamp’s main innovation was ‘ready-made art’. In 1913 his work, Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2, caused a furore at New York City’s famous Armory Show.
Robert Cook, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Photography and Design will deliver the APPRECIATING talk on the works of Duchamp, as an aperitif to the screening of Marcel Duchamp: A Definitive Biography.
