Unpacking Duchamp : art in transit by Dalia Judovitz( )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps no twentieth-century artist utilized puns and linguistic ambiguity with greater effect - and greater controversy - than Marcel Duchamp. Through a careful "unpacking" of his major works, Dalia Judovitz finds that Duchamp may well have the last laugh. She examines how he interpreted notions of mechanical reproduction in order to redefine the meaning and value of the art object, the artist, and artistic production. Judovitz begins with Duchamp's supposed abandonment of painting and his subsequent return to works that mimic art without being readily classifiable as such. Her book questions his paradoxical renouncing of pictorial and artistic conventions while continuing to evoke and speculatively draw upon them. She offers insightful analyses of his major works, including The Large Glass, Fountain, and Given: 1) the waterfall, 2) the illuminating gas
Drawing on art : Duchamp and company by Dalia Judovitz( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores the central importance of appropriation, collaboration, influence, and play in French artist Marcel Duchamp's (1887-1968) work -- and in Dada and Surrealism in general -- to show how the concept of art itself became the critical fuel and springboard for questioning art's fundamental premises. Duchamp was a French artist whose work is most often associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements. The author maintains that rather than simply negating art, Duchamp's readymades (Duchamp's "readymades" are ordinary manufactured objects that the artist selected and modified, as an antidote to what he called "retinal art") and later works, including films and conceptual pieces, demonstrating the impossibility of defining art in the first place. Through his readymades, Duchamp explicitly critiqued the commodification of art and inaugurated a profound shift from valuing art for its visual appearance to understanding the significance of its mode of public presentation
Dialogues with Marcel Duchamp by Pierre Cabanne( Book )

17 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marcel Duchamp, one of this century's pioneer artists, moved his work through the retinal boundaries which had been established with Impressionism into a field where language, thought and vision act upon one another. There it changed form through a complex interplay of new mental and physical materials, heralding many of the technical, mental and visual details to be found in more recent art...In the 1920s Duchamp gave up, quit painting. He allowed, perhaps encouraged, the attendant mythology. One thought of his decision, his willing this stopping. Yet on one occasion, he said it was not like that. He spoke of breaking a leg. 'You don't mean to do it,' he said. The Large Glass. A greenhouse for his intuition. Erotic machinery, the Bride, held in a see-through cage--'a Hilarious Picture.' Its cross references of sight and thought, the changing focus of the eyes and mind, give fresh sense to the time and space we occupy, negate any concern with art as transportation. No end is in view in this fragment of a new perspective. 'In the end you lose interest, so I didn't feel the necessity to finish it.' He declared that he wanted to kill art ('for myself') but his persistent attempts to destroy frames of reference altered our thinking, established new units of thought, 'a new thought for that object.' The art community feels Duchamp's presence and his absence. He has changed the condition of being here."--Jasper Johns, from Marcel Duchamp: An Appreciation
Marcel Duchamp by Dawn Ades( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genius, anti-artist, charlatan, guru, impostor? Since 1914 Marcel Duchamp has been called all these. No artist of the twentieth century has aroused more passion and controversy, nor exerted a greater influence on art, whose very nature Duchamp challenged and redefined as concept rather than product by questioning its traditionally privileged optical nature. At the same time, he never ceased to be engaged, openly or secretly, in provocative activities and works which transformed artmaking procedures. Written with the enthusiastic support of Duchamp's widow, this is one of the most original books ever written on this enigmatic artist, and challenges received ideas, misunderstanding and misinformation."--Jacket

Avant-garde : experimental cinema of the 1920s and '30s by Bret Wood( Visual )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and French and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century

Joseph Cornell/Marcel Duchamp --in resonance by Joseph Cornell( Book )

14 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book chronicles the friendship and working relationship between Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and Joseph Cornell (1903-1972), two of the twentieth century's most innovative and influential artists. Joseph Cornell/Marcel Duchamp ... in resonance publishes for the first time the Duchamp Dossier (c. 1942-53) - a hitherto publicly unknown collection compiled by Cornell and discovered in the artist's estate following his death in 1972. The small objects, typed and handwritten notes, and ephemera found within the Duchamp Dossier provide an absorbing record of the interchange between these two artists, which included Cornell's assisting Duchamp on the assembly of his edition de ou par Marcel Duchamp ou Rrose Selavy (commonly referred to as the Boite-en-valise)."--BOOK JACKET. "Both artists were intrigued by the connection between art and the found object, and they shared a fascination with replicated images and the processes of reproduction. They had parallel interests in optical devices, ephemeral mediums (such as glass, dust, and paper), filmmaking, and graphic design. The book focuses in depth on Duchamp's box editions and Cornell's often neglected "explorations," arranged files of printed matter, notes, and ephemera related to individuals or specific themes."--Jacket
Marcel Duchamp, the bachelor stripped bare : a biography by Alice Goldfarb Marquis( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marcel Duchamp: The Bachelor Stripped Bare is not the first full-length biography of Duchamp, but it is the first to present him in all his human contradictions and to take a refreshingly objective look at his real contribution to twentieth-century art. The well-known facts are explored here: Duchamp's myriad personal relations (with family, lovers, collectors, and artists ranging from Man Ray, Picabia, and Breton to the Stettheimer sisters and the Arensbergs); the creation of major works such as the "readymades" and the Large Glass; his passion for chess and presumed abandonment of painting. But beyond this, Alice Goldfarb Marquis looks past the diffident, humorous mask that Duchamp wore with friend and acquaintance alike, to explore the passions and insecurities that motivated many of his artistic and personal evolutions. And she separates the artist from the con artist, to determine just how profound an influence Duchamp has been."--Jacket
Debating American modernism : Stieglitz, Duchamp, and the New York avant-garde by Debra Bricker Balken( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the crossfire between Marcel Duchamp and Alfred Stieglitz and their respective circles there emerged what Debra Bricker Balken calls "a critical reformulation of modernism, one that imprinted the direction of subsequent American art." Balken traces the fascinating threads of the debate between Duchamp and Stieglitz and their respective camps through the 1910s and '20s, and also addresses the sexualized imagery that appears in nearly all of these artists' works, a phenomenon that ironically unifies the two seemingly opposed factions. Jay Bochner provides an absorbing analysis of the artists' respective violations of American expectations about art." "Debating American Modernism includes reproductions of work by artists from both factions, from Arthur Dove, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Paul Strand to Man Ray, Francis Picabia, and Marsden Hartley, as well as by a group who melded the concerns of each, among them, Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, John Storrs, and Stuart Davis."--Jacket
