In addition to its usual selection of galleries, artists, and various other exhibitors, this year’s Fountain will include a pair of projects paying homage to Marcel Duchamp‘s controversial arrival in American 100 years hence, in the same building, for the 1913 Armory Show. Installation artist Miguel Ovalle will create a work based on Duchamp’s “Nude Descending a Staircase,” while Don Porcella will fashion a replica of his “Fountain” readymade from pipe cleaners.
