Rose Ocean: Living with Duchamp

Marcel Duchamp’s (1887–1968) ideas about what art can be and how art can function in the world make him arguably the most important voice in visual art of the last century. He revolutionized art and how we understand art, and continues to do so across multiple generations, for makers and thinkers alike. Rose Ocean: Living with Duchamp revisits a 2003 Tang Museum exhibition also called Living with Duchamp, and will feature works by more than 30 contemporary artists whose conceptual and irreverent works engage with Duchamp’s oeuvre. The artists in the exhibition play with notions of construction and improvisation to question our making of the world through systems of language, knowledge, objects, and information. They engage with gender and alter egos, and tease out power relationships in art and art history.
In addition, Duchamp extended his provocations to exhibition making, by designing installations that countered the white walls and rectilinear spaces of modernist galleries. Rather than ensuring viewers an unimpeded interaction with the works on display, Duchamp obstructed sightlines and pathways within the exhibition space to complicate and highlight the act of viewing. In the Duchampian spirit, Rose Ocean will be designed in collaboration with students from Associate Professor Michael Oatman’s “Marcel Duchamp Seminar” in the School of Architecture at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY.
