Audible Editor Reviews

Marcel Duchamp was a painter and sculptor who lived from 1887 to late October, 1968. Like his peers Picasso and Matisse, Duchamp helped to explode artistic convention and modernize several art forms. He is considered a seminal influence in dadaism, conceptual art, and plastic art. Duchamp was an excellent critic and a sage philosopher who tried to alert society to the corrosive effects of artifice and censorship in fields of art and intellect. Duchamp celebrated the innate freedom of the self. In Marcel Duchamp: Appearance Stripped Bare globally esteemed poet Octavio Paz discusses the legacy of Duchamp and the continued relevance of Duchamp’s insights and warnings. Paul Michael Garcia and Donald Gardener co-narrate this erudite ode written by one great artist in honor of another.
