Leather and Lace

over 9 years ago

Another long-forgotten gesture, the Société Anonyme’s inaugural exhibition seems to have been in effect Duchamp’s first major exhibition design, looking forward to his later Surrealist installations, and for it he covered the floor of the entire space with industrial rubber, wrapped the walls with a special oilskin fabric that would reflect the blue of the sky, and encircled all of the individual paintings with lace doily frames. No photographs of this exhibition, sadly, survive.
