Duchamp’s readymades were mass-produced objects that the artist chose, signed, and sometimes inscribed with mysterious phrases. He used them to shake up the accepted norms of artistic creation. Duchamp considered them his greatest achievement. One hundred years ago, Duchamp’s Fountain turned the art world upside down. Was it art? A hoax? This exhibition celebrates the centennial of the provocative and influential work that changed the course of modern art. Find out more about the Marcel Duchamp exhibition from the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s website.
