A driving force behind many modern movements—Dada, Surrealism, Futurism and Kinetic/Conceptual Art—Marcel Duchamp did more than any other artist in the 20th century to change the concept of art. In this documentary, the enigmatic French artist and theorist candidly discusses his life, his ideas on art, his obsession with chess and why he chose to live in America after fleeing France in 1915. The program includes original footage of interviews filmed during Duchamp’s first retrospective exhibition, held at the Pasadena Art Museum in 1963, five years before he died.
