Series of lectures Duchamp, Man Ray and Picabia: Anti-art in the 20th Century
Lourdes Cirlot Valenzuela, Professor of Art History at the University of Barcelona
Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio, PhD student and scholarship holder in the Department of Art History at the University of Barcelona
The series, based around the exhibition Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia, has as its aim to study the period of the early avant-garde, extraordinarily fruitful from the point of view of the artistic contributions and which had a special impact in Catalonia.
The artistic and literary movement of the second and third decades of the 20th century ? Dadaism or Dada ? became a revolt against the general conceptions of culture and against the contemporary social situation, and Duchamp, Man Ray and Picabia were three of its greatest exponents. The ready-mades of Marcel Duchamp (Paris, 1913) were the beginning of ?proto-Dadaism?, developed in New York (1915-1923) with the non-conformist work of Man Ray, M. de Zayas, A. Cravan and, above all, Francis Picabia. Duchamp, Man Ray and Picabia will be the connecting thread of the course, to be given by lecturers specialising on the subject.
