In celebration of Dada’s one hundredth anniversary in 2016 and the centennial of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain in 2017, this exhibition examines how artists have incorporated commonplace household items into their work, removing these objects from the context of the home in ways that subvert the experiences of daily life. This exhibit has traveled from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Work by Duchamp, Duane Hanson, Damien Hirst, Man Ray, Takashi Murakami, Nam June Paik, Robert Therrien, and Andy Warhol is included.

Some Aesthetic Decisions
A Centennial Celebration of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain

May 14–September 3, 2017
NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, Florida
nsuartmuseum.org

One hundred years ago, Marcel Duchamp forever changed the nature of art when he submitted Fountain, a porcelain urinal, to the Society of Independent Artists exhibition in New York. The subsequent rejection of Duchamp’s Fountain by the exhibition’s organizers ignited a controversy that continues today about the definition of art. This exhibition includes work by Jeff Koons, Richard Phillips, Andy Warhol, and others.
