Marcel Duchamp + Ron Mueck - Please Touch: Marcel Duchamp and the Fetish + 5 Years of Sculpture, 1996–2021
Please Touch: Marcel Duchamp and the Fetish - Curated by Paul B. Franklin, is the first to explore the centrality of fetishism and the fetish in the artist's practice. Although Duchamp himself acknowledged that eroticism was 'Visible or conspicuous, or, at any rate, underlying […] the basis of everything I was doing', the role of fetishism in his work has been largely overlooked by scholars and curators. In fact, fetishism served Duchamp as a potent guiding principle as he traced his singular path in twentieth-century art.
Ron Mueck: 25 Years of Sculpture, 1996–2021 - The artist's first exhibition at Thaddaeus Ropac – will mark the most comprehensive gallery survey of the internationally acclaimed sculptor to date. The exhibition will present the artist's most celebrated pieces from a career spanning two and a half decades, alongside new and previously unseen sculptures.
