Panel Discussion: "The Legacy of Marcel Duchamp" at Bowdoin College

01.17.15 Bowdoin College will be hosting a panel discussion entitled, "The Legacy of Marcel Duchamp" on Wednesday, January 21st from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Visual Arts Center in Kresge Auditorium at the College's Brunswick campus. Considered one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, Marcel Duchamp helped reshape the way art is practiced and understood. Come hear how a scholar, a museum director, and a conservator understand and interpret the legacy and importance of this transformative figure. If you can't make it in person, never fear, the discussion will be streamed live on the Internet.
