Marcel Dzama: Jester's Dance

Une Danse des Bouffons

December 10, 2015–January 24, 2016 in the Lockhart GalleryUneDanse_still_1-web

This 2013 film by Canadian artist Marcel Dzama is a fictionalized account of the ill-fated affair between Dada artist Marcel Duchamp and Brazilian sculptor Maria Martins. Rife with art historical references to the work of Duchamp, Francisco Goya, Francis Picabia and Joseph Beuys, among others, the 30-minute production is an exciting and often bizarre exploration of the surreal.

This exhibition contains imagery, including nudity and violence, that may not be appropriate for all viewers.
