Duchamp Accelerated

International Symposium
OCAD University

Room 190

Free and Open to the Public

Organized by Julian Jason Haladyn
Co-Organized by Maya Wilson-Sanchez

Duchamp Accelerated is an international symposium held at OCAD University in Toronto. It brings together academic and non-academic researchers from around the world in an effort to re-think Marcel Duchamp, his art and ideas, within the contemporary moment. The symposium includes participants from the fields of art history, curatorial practice, architectural history, academia and art production to discuss and imagine an accelerated Duchamp. This is a Duchamp that speaks not only to the art world, but also and importantly to the worlds of culture and politics, economics and the social. A Duchamp whose art and ideas, directly and indirectly, are able to inform future developments in the conception and practice of art, including our social understanding of art, material culture, consumer society and identity in our era of late capitalism.
