 • ‘Plays of / for a Respirateur’ An Installation by Joseph Kosuth
    October 21 2015 - fall 2016: Conceived by American artist Joseph Kosuth this installation includes a selection of his work along with a group of seminal works by Marcel Duchamp from the Museum’s collection. The installation takes as its point of departure Duchamp’s notion of “elementary parallelism” coined to refer to his pictorial treatment of time and movement in Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2) from 1912. This same expression finds concrete resonance in Kosuth’s ‘An Elementary Parallelism’ from 2013 which is the starting point for the installation unfolding across four gallery walls. For Kosuth the phrase serves as a springboard to investigate the multiple ways in which his work intersects with that of Duchamp.http://www.philamuseum.org/exhibitions/834.html >> read more or comment
