Join Museum educator Midori Yoshimoto and Museum conservator Chris McGlinchey for an exploration of the artistic possibilities of the chance operation Marcel Duchamp used in creating his 3 Standard Stoppages, and learn how this innovative concept and process impacted John Cage in his work with music and sound. McGlinchey provides insight into Duchamp’s creative process, and discusses whether or not Duchamp took a chance with 3 Standard Stoppages. The session ends with an experiment involving dropping pieces of string to see if it’s possible to achieve similar curves.
