The subversive Dada/ Surrealist artist with an aptitude for controversy is the focus of an exhibition of seven unconventional works. Defying categorization and blurring the boundaries of book, objet d’art and sculpture are pieces like “Boite,” a leather valise with tiny replicas and photos inside.
|Date||Through Nov. 11|
|Location||Legion of Honor|
|Event Description||The rarely seen Boîte en Valise (1941) and Sur Marcel Duchamp (1959) take center stage in this small-focus exhibition featuring seven artworks by Marcel Duchamp (1877–1968) that refuse to conform to traditional bibliographic structure, hovering between book, objet d’art, and sculpture. The exhibition complements the presentation of Man Ray | Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism, as Ray and Duchamp were friends and collaborators for over 50 years.|
|Price||$10 adults; $7 seniors; $6 ages 13-17; children 12 and under Free; free 1st Tue of the month|
