Swing to Big Butter

Duchamp to Pop

Duchamp to Pop

Two words. Marcel. Duchamp. Assimilating Cubism and Futurism. Leading the American Dada movement. Coining the word “readymade” to mean a mass-produced object removed from its usual, accepted context and “promoted to the status of artwork by the mere choice of the artist. An inclination for wordplay that “aligns his work with that of Surrealists.” Considered […]
