Exhibition Overview

Curated by artist, art theorist, and Corcoran College of Art and Design professor Mark Cameron Boyd, Readymade@100 celebrates the 100th anniversary of Marcel Duchamp's readymade concept. This juried exhibition includes contemporary artist's submissions of "new" readymades that significantly expand upon Duchamp's originary idea, thus celebrating Duchamp's vision and developing the concept.
