Making Sense of Marcel Duchamp

The man who drew a moustache and goatee on the Mona Lisa is explored
at the visually abundant Making Sense of Marcel Duchamp, an attempt
to understand the experimental and brilliant painter, sculptor,
author and inventor.

Associated with dadaism, surrealism and other unconventional concepts
but slave to none, Duchamp was among the first to insist that art was
about ideas, not objects. His family life, student days and lifelong
creations are traced through an interactive pictorial timeline that
includes his "readymade" experiments, his "rotary demispheres" that
probed optics and depth perception and his other boundary-stretching
works that have helpedmerge the worlds of art and thought today.
