Already—Made ?

In 1913, Marcel Duchamp came up with the artistic concept of ready-made, defining it as an “ordinary object elevated to the dignity of a work of art by the mere choice of an artist”. The original attitude – which still governs the definition of what is strictly considered to be ready-made today – consists of choosing a manufactured object and designating it as a work of art.

Pierre et Gilles, Goldorak, 2010.

The Already-Made? exhibition, which is being held at the gallery Jérome de Noirmont, precisely highlights the scale and diversity of this contemporary grasping of the ready-made concept, whether involving the assembly of found objects, using objects for purposes other than those for which they were designed or a conception focussing on the object’s symbolic and metaphorical value…

Jean-Michel Basquiat at the MAM

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

This exhibition consists of one hundred major works (paintings, drawings, objects) gathered from many museums, american and european private collections. It follows the chronological path of the artist and measure its huge consequenses in Art and Art history beyond the 80’s. Basquiat, Haitian and Puerto Rican origin, born in Brooklyn in 1960 in the state of New York and died in New York in 1988 following an overdose at the age of twenty-seven years, belongs to the graffiti generation which abruptly emerged in New York in the late 70s. In 1977, he began signing his graffiti of the name of SAMO (for “Same Old Shit”) with a crown and the initials of the copyright. During his fulgurating career, his painting moves from the street to the paintings. His work combines sacred mythologies of voodoo, Bible, comics, advertising, media, African American heroes, music, boxing, and affirmation of his blackness. It defines an anti-urban culture, underground, violent and anarchic, full of freedom and vitality. In 1982, Basquiat is invited to participate at Documenta 7 in Kassel, Germany. The following year he was the youngest and first black artist to exhibit at the Biennale of the Whitney American Art Museum in New York.
