Julian Wasser : Duchamp in Pasadena Revisited brings the quintessential photographs of Julian Wasser, together with an installation of appropriated works of art produced primarily by L.A. based artist Gregg Gibbs to create an exclusive experience of the 1963 Duchamp retrospective at the Pasadena Art Museum. Works on view originally produced by Duchamp and appropriated by Gibbs will include early works such as Bicycle Wheel, Nude Descending a Staircase, I.H.O.O.Q, 1919; With Hidden Noise, 1916, and one of Duchamp's masterworks The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass), 1915-1923. The piece de resistance is a life-sized recreation of Wasser's now-infamous photograph of Marcel Duchamp and Eve Babitz playing chess at the museum in 1963.
