Marcel Duchamp

Marcel Duchamp 

The individual, man as a man, man as a brain, if you like, interests me more than what he makes, because I've noticed that most artists only repeat themselves.

Marcel Duchamp & Eve Babitz

Marcel Duchamp & Eve Babitz sat in one of the galleries of the Pasadena Museum of Art and played chess In 1963. The occasion was the Duchamp retrospective at the museum. The match was not a live performance, it was staged and no viewers were present. The Duchamp/Babitz photograph became a defining image of the early 60s LA art scene.
Duchamp loved so much chess, he said; ' I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art - and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position'.
