EVENT DETAILS

In January 1917, Marcel Duchamp ascended a staircase to the top of the Washington Arch, where he joined friends in proclaiming the Free and Independent Republic of Washington Square. Eleven months later, the Armistice ended World War I. Join us in exploring the homes and haunts of Duchamp and his fellow modernist artists, who lived and worked cheek-by-jowl among the local Irish and Italians who knew little of modern art but much of war and its grief.
