Equator Art Projects is pleased to present Marcel Duchamp in South-East Asia, an exhibition in the gallery’s new space at Gillman Barracks, featuring 44 artists from Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Iran, and England.
Curated by Tony Godfrey, the Director of Exhibitions at Equator Art Projects, artists in this show were invited to exhibit works that in some ways reflect on or respond to the work or legacy of the French artist Marcel Duchamp, who is often referred to as "the father of conceptual art", and was the most influential artist of the last one hundred years in the West. Has he also been the most influential artist in South-East Asia?
