MARCEL DUCHAMP: THE AFTERNOON INTERVIEWS

Written by Tomkins, Calvin
In 1964, Calvin Tomkins spent a number of afternoons interviewing Marcel Duchamp in his apartment on West 10th Street in New York. Casual yet insightful, Duchamp reveals himself as a man and an artist whose playful principles toward living freed him to make art that was as unpredictable, complex, and surprising as life itself. Those interviews have never been edited and made public, until now.

PROPHETIC ZOOLOGICAL ATLAS

There isnt any single reality, nor a unique way of looking at things. Seeing things from different angles is a very fruitful way to come to terms with our living in this world. The youngsters from Atelier dellErrore, a laboratory of visual arts created at the initiative of visual artist Luca Santiago Mora as a complementary service to the Child Neuropsychiatric clinics of Reggio Emilia and Bergamo, know this very well. Their creative imagination is focused on the representation of animals depicted as ancestral figures, living organisms foreign to any traditional order of scientific classification. The Atelier animals certainly embody the fears and defeats of those drawing them, but more so their need for protection and their powerful drive towards self-assertion.
