Riding with Marcel: How Duchamp's Ideas Altered the Course of Modern Art; Marcel en roue libre: Comment Duchamp changea la course de l'art moderne

Sunday, May 18, 2014, 11:30 a.m.

The Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 5, fifth floor

While looking at Marcel Duchamp's work we discuss how his creations' humor and incessant probing of the boundaries of art altered the course of modern art, and how, as "an artist who speaks to artists," he made a lasting impact on the postwar generation of American artists.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
