March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Thursday, March 22, please enjoy a “live dissection” of the work of Marcel Duchamp, offered by Russell Scheidelman.
ASSIGNMENT : To view, as part of your studies in the Pataphysical Science of Artistic Anatomy, a live dissection of the corpus of a great artist’s work. As your instructor, I intend to open up and surgically probe Marcel Duchamp’s mini-museum, the so-called “Boîte en valise” (or “Box in a Suitcase”), as re-envisioned by contemporary French artist Mathieu Mercier.
Note-taking will not be necessary, but drinking a preparative libation, as provided in the anteroom to the surgery theater, is highly recommended. (These libations will have been personally prepared by me beforehand in my home laboratory.)
