An abstract painting need in 50 years by no means look "abstract" any longer.More Marcel Duchamp quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To all appearances, the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way out to a clearing. If we give the attributes of a medium to the artist, we must then deny him the state of consciousness on the aesthetic plane about what he is doing or why he is doing it. All his decisions in the artistic execution of the work rest with pure intuition and cannot be translated into a self-analysis, spoken or written, or even thought out.More Marcel Duchamp quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. This becomes even more obvious when posterity gives its final verdict and sometimes rehabilitates forgotten artists.More Marcel Duchamp quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I was interested in ideas, not in visual products. I wanted to put painting again in the service of the mind.More Marcel Duchamp quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art -- and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position.More Marcel Duchamp quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
