TREASURE HUNT: Finding James Clerk Maxwell (and Others) in Marcel Duchamp
When: Thursday, September 19 5-7pm

Paola Magi’s recent work Maxwell in Duchamp explores how Duchamp drew inspiration not only from Maxwell’s scientific theories, but also from his personality, his sense of humor, and his wide-ranging literary and artistic interests. Magi will also discuss a collection she edits focusing on key primary sources in Duchamp’s work.
