The Bride and the Bachelors: Duchamp with Cage, Cunningham, Rauschenberg and Johns

Today my UEL Discourse module students and I visited the Barbican for this intriguing exhibition. Discussions between us focused on the architecture of the Barbican, the sign systems by Cartlidge Levene, the idea of Ready mades and the curation of the works and what ‘conversations’ they had with each other. The no photography rule inside the gallery allows me to post this shot outside the Silk Street entrance. We then headed over to the Design Museum for Designs of the year 2013, where the students concluded that it was a less challenging exhibition but they enjoyed it for the focus it placed on design.
