"Re: Duchamp, Travelling Exhibition" is one of
the most recent works of Abraham Lubelski and
incorporates the work of over 250 other artists
(including Nam June Paik, Dennis Oppenheim, Carl
Andre, Ilya + Emilia Kabakov, Inka Essenhigh,
Taylor Mead, and Larry Weiner, among others). The
installation, after Duchamp’s installation for
the "First Papers of Surrealism", is an
assemblage of clotheslines from which are hung
all the artwork to be viewed at once. These shows
become a Duchampian metaphor of the contemporary
art world.

When Duchamp developed a benefit exhibition for
the French Relief Societies in 1942 with a mile
of string it was not only to fulfill a commission
to do things as cheaply as possible but it was
also the opportunity to create a metaphor for the
difficulties the visitor often encounters in the
attempt to understand modern art. To Duchamp, to
Beuys, everything is art and everything is
possible. Or at least art is an attempt at the
seemingly impossible. Still the greatest dream of
everyone is to live a life of freedom: free to be
curious, to explore, to seize the moment, to
understand. The artist and the world create a
common bond, that we are united in our search for

The installation has evolved as it has been
presented from country to country. "Re: Duchamp"
has already been exhibited in New York City and
in various cities in Germany, Poland, Chile and
Israel and most recently at the Venice Biennale.
