“Marcel Duchamp and the Lure of the Copy” Lecture.
“Marcel Duchamp and the Lure of the Copy” Lecture.

Paul B. Franklin, Paris-based art historian and an internationally acclaimed expert on the life and work of Marcel Duchamp, will present the exhibition he curated entitled Marcel Duchamp and the Lury of the Copy. During the lecture, Franklin will illustrate the artist's disruptive poetics with a focus on the exhibition themes, such as provocative questions raised by Duchamp more than one-hundred years ago and still remarkably relevant today: the blurred boundaries between original and copy, reality and fiction, material and immaterial, human and nonhuman.
