REINVENTING THE WHEEL: THE READYMADE CENTURY
One hundred years ago, Marcel Duchamp sent shockwaves through the art world with one devastatingly simple work: an inverted bicycle wheel.
Giving birth to an entire artistic language – the readymade – Duchamp’s conversion of an unadorned everyday object into a figure of high art completely inverted how people considered artistic practice. Suddenly, art was capable of being everywhere and in everything. It was a revolutionary moment in modern art, and the ripples from this epochal shift still resonate today.
With Reinventing the Wheel: The Readymade Century, MUMA pays tribute to a hundred years of readymade art. Bringing together works by over 50 artists – from Duchamp and Man Ray to Andy Warhol and Martin Creed, along with some of Australia’s leading practitioners – this is a one-of-a-kind salute to an idea that continues to define the very nature of contemporary art.
Commissioning Curator Max Delany
In parallel with Reinventing the Wheel, MUMA presents a series of three Saturday afternoon performances by Australian sound artists using found sounds, including Sarah Byrne, Julian Day and Luke Jaaniste, Lawrence English and Joyce Hinterding, and featuring the premiere of a new work for violin and electronics by composer Mary Finsterer.
