Dancing Around Duchamp

A series of events and exhibitions celebrating the life and influence of Marcel Duchamp will take place in London, England - at The Barbican Centre.

"This spring the Barbican embraces chance, provocation and humour in an international season celebrating Marcel Duchamp, widely considered the father of conceptual art and the most influential artist of the 20th century. We invite you to explore work by his precursors, collaborators and the generations of artists he has influenced across art, music, dance, theatre and film."

There will be an exhibition - The Bride and the Bachelors: Duchamp with Cage, Cunningham, Rauschenberg and Johns - of painting, sculpture, stage sets and musical notations...

You will be able to see/hear a programme of Cage music and Cunningham dance.

The theatre will present pieces by Jarry, Ionesco and Beckett, etc.

The cinema will show films by  Hans Richter, Man Ray, John Cage and Jean-Luc Godard, plus silent comedy and movies from the American underground.


You can find an excellent animated website called Making Sense of Marcel Duchamp online...
