ART-3900AF: This Is Art: Marcel Duchamp

Why is the art gallery filled with balloons, or neon, or videos or detritus from the street and not paintings or drawings that we are traditionally used to? The answer is the historical influence of Marcel Duchamp and his best-known work, Fountain. This is Art: Marcel Duchamp is designed to introduce the student to the life and art of one of contemporary art’s most important, influential and infamous characters who dramatically changed the landscape of art. We will examine his work from his early paintings through his readymade sculptures in order to comprehend the terrain of contemporary art today. We will also investigate his influence into postmodern art, as expressed in the work of such figures as Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Sherrie Levine and Felix Gonzalez-Torres. This workshop will be aided by slide lectures, videos, and readings in order to present the many facets of this truly interesting and exciting artist.
