Fountain of Youth

2017 is the 100th anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s coup, a piece of sanitary ware presented as a work of art. This early method of conceptual art had encouraged other artists to explore this theme which resulted in an avant-garde movement. Artist's such as Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns were part of this growing movement, as well as others, such as Mary Bauermeister. Mary Bauermeister's work (which is also part of the inventory of MoMA, Guggenheim and Whitney NY) is evidence to this development and has inspired many of the artists of the 21st Century. Fourteen artists have been invited to take part in this exhibition alongside their original oeuvre, in the form of a ready-made, objet trouvé or found footage.
