Presented by Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery ·

HERE&NOW18 will present new works from Western Australian artists Perdita Phillips, Alex Spremberg, Carly Lynch, Peter & Molly, Julie Dowling, and Bjoern Rainer-Adamson that respond to the challenge of contemporary art set by Marcel Duchamp 100 years ago. The year 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Duchamp’s death, as well as 50 years since the Marcel Duchamp: The Mary Sisler Collection exhibition of his work, which toured to the Art Gallery of Western Australia in 1968.

To mark the occasion, HERE&NOW18 offers a contemporary engagement with the iconoclastic technical, social and cultural legacy of Duchamp through themes of duality, process and disruption – while participating in a refective dialogue with a private collection of Marcel Duchamp artworks and ephemera.
