« Marcel Duchamp, The Painter » at the Pompidou Centre, Paris.
With a hundred works of art gathered together for the first time, the Pompidou Centre dedicates a major monograph of painter Marcel Duchamp.
At the heart of this exhibition, visitors are invited to review paintings and drawings that lead the artist to create his great collection. In order to situate his work in the coherence of a slow, complete genesis, Marcel Duchamp distributed his paintings amongst a small circle of collectors, replicating every piece in his suitcase, for posterity and for those that he calls ‘observers’. Although relatively unknown in Europe, these paintings, most of which are kept at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, have been reunited for the occasion, surrounded by a number of sources.
Until 15th January 2015.
