THIS IS NOT ART


  • Mystic Museum of Art 9 Water Street Mystic, CT 06355 USA

Marcel Duchamp anonymously submitted “Fountain” to the Society of Independent Artists for exhibition in 1917. The exhibition was non-juried and all works submitted by members were to be displayed. However, the organization refused to exhibit “Fountain”, arguing that it was not art. Duchamp contested that the work was art, because an artist had made it. With this work, Duchamp challenged the idea of what art can be. Our juried theme show this year celebrates the 100th anniversary of Duchamp’s ground breaking work. “This Is Not Art” is a theme, but also a challenge to create work that pushes boundaries. The show will run from January 13 through February 25.
