Luscinia Musical

August 5, 2013 - August 17, 2013

Robert Jarvis is a musician and sound artist who makes compositions from found sounds. These become sonic interventions that have at their centre the process of creating the work. He engages with and involves local communities as a piece develops. Inspired by Duchamp’s Erratum Musical (1913) – a conceptual composition for piano, and also the 1920’s recordings of Beatrice Harrison, Robert has created a new work for the festival. The lyrical composed phrases of a male nightingale singing for a…

A trail of original prints around the town, including exclusive Young British Artists strips by Andrew Birch which will be displayed next to readymade Marcel Duchamp style “Fountains” in up to 40 local lavatories.

In addition, there will be a gallery exhibiting the cartoonists’ work for a fortnight; and originals and signed prints…

July 18, 2013 - August 17, 2013
24, William Street Herne Bay, CT6 5EQ United Kingdom

In 1919 Duchamp created what he called an ‘assisted readymade’. He acquired a cheap postcard reproduction of the Mona Lisa (La Gioconda), an iconic work of art by Leonardo Da Vinci, which hangs in the Louvre in Paris, and embellished it by adding a beard and moustache, retitling it L.H.O.O.Q. We have invited Herne Bay’s primary school children to do something similar. Six famous works of art have been selected and printed as postcards. Children from Herne Bay Junior, Herne…

Introducing Mr D

July 11, 2013 - August 17, 2013
Herne Bay Museum,
12 William Street Herne Bay, Kent CT6 5EJ United Kingdom

This exhibition is part of the series of celebratory events and exhibitions taking place throughout Herne Bay during July and August. In planning the centenary it became clear that although Duchamp is counted, in the art world, as one of the most (if not the most) significant artists of the 20th century, many people had never heard of him. Many people had heard of the man who had once mischievously and outrageously exhibited a urinal in an art exhibition, but…
