Most people have heard the name Marcel Duchamp. Some may even have a sense of his association with the founding of the Dada movement and his impact on modern art. But what exactly did his work mean to other artists? In this session we will explore Duchamp's important influence on artists such as David Hammons, Lynda Benglis (who is responsible for that title quote), and others. This session meets at the entrance of Gallery 1, Floor 5.

This session is led by Jane Royal.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
