Throughout his oeuvre, Duchamp questioned the traditional hierarchy between original and copy. Replicating his work in different media, on various scales, and in limited editions, Duchamp radically redefined what constitutes a work of art and, by extension, the identity of the artist. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the Box in a Valise (1935–41), a portable museum of 69 miniature replicas and reproductions of Duchamp’s work, which Peggy Guggenheim acquired from the artist in 1941. The exhibition also features major loans from Italian and American museums, as well as several important private collections, including some 30 artworks from the collection of Attilio Codognato, in Venice.
The exhibition is curated by Paul B. Franklin, a Paris-based independent scholar and expert on Marcel Duchamp.
