One hundred years ago, Marcel Duchamp first used the term “Readymade” to describe a series of his work. The Bicycle Wheel had been created earlier, and his iconic Fountain was yet to come, but 1916 was the year that this concept was first articulated. Now 100 years later, we celebrate Duchamp and the Readymade with a group exhibition in the Axle Contemporary mobile gallery. 25 New Mexico artists share their Readymades and Readymade-inspired artworks. Each selected work will be displayed with an accompanying text by each artist, reflecting on the Readymade as an artform and their own way of selecting work for this exhibition.
Artists: Susanna Carlisle & Bruce Hamilton, Susan Case, Dana Chodzko, Chris Collins, Ed Epping, Rick Fisher, Michelle Goodman, Erin Gould, Jamie Hamilton, Nacho Jaramillo, Kathamann, Rachel Manera, Thelma Mathias, Kathleen McCloud, Dana Newmann, Joe Buffalo Nickels, Anne Russell, Iren Schio, Michael Schippling, Uma Schlemnari, Jane Shoenfeld, Gina Telcocci, Bunny Tobias, and Tara Evonne Trudell.
