Subject: Venice Biennal / Re:Duchamp: Traveling Exhibition


*For Immediate Release* 
We are pleased to announce our participation in the: 
VENICE BIENNAL 2001: 
June 6 - July 14, 2001 
City of Venice, Italy
In the church of S. Maria Ausiliatrice, in Fondamenta San Gioacchin 454, at 
the end of via Garibaldi

"RE: DUCHAMP": Traveling Exhibition 


"Re: Duchamp, Traveling Exhibition"† is one of the most recent works of 
Abraham Lubelski and incorporates the work of over 250 other artists 
(including Nam June Paik, Dennis Oppenheim, Carl Andre, Ilya + Emilia 
Kabakov, Inka Essenhigh, Taylor Mead, and Larry Weiner, among others).† The 
installation, after Duchamp^“s installation for the "First Papers of 
Surrealism", is an assemblage of clotheslines from which are hung all the 
artwork to be viewed at once.† These shows become a Duchampian metaphor of 
the contemporary art world. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Duchamp developed a benefit exhibition for the French Relief Societies 
in 1942 with a mile of string it was not only to fulfill a commission to do 
things as cheaply as possible but it was also the opportunity to create a 
metaphor for the difficulties the visitor often encounters in the attempt to 
understand modern art. To Duchamp, to Beuys, everything is art and everything 
is possible. Or at least art is an attempt at the seemingly impossible. Still 
the greatest dream of everyone is to live a life of freedom: free to be 
curious, to explore, to seize the moment, to understand. The artist and the 
world create a common bond, that we are united in our search for ^”truth.^‘ 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The installation has evolved as it has been presented from country to 
country.† "Re: Duchamp" has already been exhibited in New York City and in 
various cities in Germany, Poland, Chile and Israel. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The "Re:Duchamp Travelling Exhibition" forms part of the "Markers" project, 
that involves well-know cultural foundations that operate in Venice, such as 
the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and Biennale Arti Visive, besides the 
Municipality of Venice itself.
