980 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10075
June 26 – August 8, 2014
Now on view at the Madison Avenue exhibition space, Gagosian Gallery presents an exhibition of readymade sculptures by Marcel Duchamp. Many of Duchamp’s earliest and most provocative readymades were destroyed or otherwise misplaced; from 1964, the artist worked with Arturo Schwarz to produce fourteen editioned sculptures, which comprise the exhibition. These works, as reproductions of absent originals and original, authentic works of art in themselves, occupy an exciting and historic auratic space. The opportunity to experience these iconic artworks together, today, is not to be missed.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Gagosian will produce a new catalog with texts by Calvin Tomkins and Dr. Adina Kamien-Kazhdan. A new text on Duchamp, an expanded version of Calvin Tomkins’s The Bride and the Bachelors, was published by Gagosian in 2014.
For more information, please visit the gallery’s website.
The exhibition remains on view through August 8.
Duchamp speaks about “Nude Descending a Staircase,” “Large Glass,” selecting objects for readymades, optics, and more.
