MARCEL DUCHAMP IN CENTRE POMPIDOU PARIS: LA PEINTURE, MÊME

DUCHAMPSPOMPIDOU02

“I think that art is the only form of activity through which man shows himself to be a real individual. Through it alone, he can move beyond the animal stage because art opens onto regions dominated by neither time nor space.”

Marcel Duchamp

“And yet I have drawn people’s attention to the fact that art is a mirage. A mirage, just like the oasis that appears in the desert. It is very beautiful, until the moment when you die of thirst, obviously. But we do not die  of thirst in the field of art. The mirage has substance.”

Marcel Duchamp, 1964

MARCEL DUCHAMP: PAINTING, EVEN
UNTIL 5 JANUARY 2015  CENTRE POMPIDOU PARIS

Through a 100-odd works brought together for the first time, the Centre Pompidou is devoting a monograph exhibition to the painted work of Marcel Duchamp. With a completely new and knowingly paradoxical approach, the exhibition is designed to show the paintings of the man who, in common modernist opinion, killed painting.

At the heart of this pictorial work and the discourse of the exhibition, visitors are invited to take a new look at the paintings and drawings that led Marcel Duchamp to create his masterpiece, known as Le Grand Verre, La mariée mise à nu par ses célibataires, même (The Bride Stripped Bare by her Suitors, Even (The Large Glass)), which was begun in 1910 and declared unfinished by the artist in 1923.

DUCHAMPSPOMPIDOU03To situate this work in the context of a long and complex creative process, Duchamp conscientiously  gathered his paintings together in the hands of a small circle of collectors, and replicated them in his Boîte-en-Valise (Box in a Suitcase) for posterity and those he called «the viewers».
Little-known in Europe, these paintings (now mostly in the Philadelphia Museum of Art) have been reunited at the Centre Pompidou, surrounded by the pictorial, scientific and technical sources, as well those acquired from books, that Duchamp drew on during those crucial and fertile years. The exhibition thus provides new keys for more clearly interpreting and understanding a programmatic work that is also a manifesto.

From humorous drawings to the Nu descendant l’escalier, from mathematics to the theme of the «Bride», from works on perspective to the films of Etienne-Jules Marey and Georges Méliès, from Impressionism to Cubism, and from Cranach the Elder to Edouard Manet and Odilon Redon, by way of Francis Picabia and František Kupka, the circuit takes the public step by step through the construction of one of modern art’s richest and most fascinating works, Le Grand Verre, with the aid of essential and unexpected references. The exhibition reveals Duchamp’s pictorial studies, his Fauve period, the influence of Symbolism, his Cubist explorations, and the nonsense and humour that imbued his work, notably through the artist’s original notes, now in the Centre Pompidou.
It highlights his interest in literature and words, as well as in the optical, physical and mechanical sciences.

With Marcel Duchamp. La peinture, même., the Centre Pompidou helps to write the history of the art of our times, providing a fresh look at the work of one of the most iconic figures in 20th century art.
