Do you know Rrose Sélavy?
No? Humm… Eros, c’est la vie… arroser la vie…
Rrose, my dear, is a creation of three provocative artistic figures from 20th century’s early years. Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia were good friends with the same sense of humour, bits of will to shock, some freakness and a lot of creativity. This explosive mixture established artistic norms and made a turning point in the world of art at that time.
Dadaism, surrealism, ready made art (is the urinal placed in a museum other than in a loo a piece of art?), Man Ray and his X-Ray experiences, non-sensism, provocation and all that comes along made that fantastic exhbition at Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.
In collaboration with the Tate Modern.
