a message from France ..about UNDERGROUNDZERO 2014 New York City

Duchamp Duchamp! (My Dinner with DD)

 by Group Art Tangent
with Mona Hurri, Jules, and Madeleine Baker

July 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 at 6:30 pm @ site-specific venues 
- All tours start at Clemente Soto Vélez - 107 Suffolk Street $20

Renowned French art historians Mona Hurri, Jules, and Madeleine Baker will
reveal (through interactive lecture, performance, and art archeology) the life and
work of the little known, widely influential artist and theoretician Duchamp
Duchamp. Less known than his sister Suzanne Duchamp and his three brothers
Jacques Villon, Raymond Duchamp-Villon and Marcel Duchamp, André
Duchamp, also known as “DD” then Duchamp Duchamp, was a butcher and
delicatessen owner before turning to the field of art to challenge his famous
brother Marcel. He developed unique and widely dispersed polymorphic work
and a theory of art, which became the seeds for the Art Tangent movement, one
of the precursors of the Constructivists. The curators of this program will
organize “a series of events around his personality, in various places
(delicatessens, dry cleaners, museums, art galleries, etc.) to share our knowledge
of this man who has for too long remained in the shadows.”

The undergroundzero festival returns to lower Manhattan for its sixth
incarnation on July 7 – 20, 2014 for two weeks of site-specific live arts. All
projects and the festival itself are created and presented without a budget. This is
a collective gesture of disobedience, a radical act of generosity, and a (last) hurrah
for the downtown underground.
