"Beyond Repetition: Marcel Duchamp's Readymades"
Marcel Duchamp is famous for inventing the "readymade" - a form of art that reframes ordinary commodities as art. This seemingly simple gesture has had an enormous impact on art since 1960. By focusing on the objects on view at MAM, Carnegie Professor in the History of Art, Yale University, David Joselit will give an account of the readymade's complexity and variety. (Space is limited.
