ParisPlease Touch: Marcel Duchamp and the Fetish
Curated by Paul B. Franklin
This exhibition is the first to explore the centrality of the fetish in Marcel Duchamp’s practice. Largely overlooked by scholars and curators, fetishism served as a potent guiding principle as the artist traced his singular path through twentieth-century art. Duchamp himself acknowledged that eroticism was ‘visible or conspicuous, or, at any rate, underlying […] the basis of everything I was doing’.
