The resistivity—in form and thought alike—that distinguishes the oeuvre of Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968) is unbroken, his questions are present: What is art? What constitutes an object? What is a subject? What unites and divides science and poetry? What defines our gender and our identity?
With persistent exactitude and welcome unpredictability, resolute anarchy, and humorous ease, Marcel Duchamp made works that, by virtue of their precision and openness, reach completion only through us, the viewers. His oeuvre thus, changes with us and with time. Thanks to Duchamp, we know that everything can become art, and that thinking knows no boundaries.
Marcel Duchamp is the first comprehensive exhibition in two decades to feature works spanning all phases of the artist’s oeuvre from 1902 to 1968.
