  • Marcel Duchamp: tant Donns

  • Aug 14, 2009 to Nov 29, 2009
  • Location: Philadelphia, USA Philadelphia Museum of Art
  • Description: tant Donns, Duchamps last major work, has been described by Jasper Johns as é’“the strangest work of art in any museum. What at first looks like an boarded-up wooden door is actually a tableau visible only through two peep holes, which reveal a half-hidden naked woman in a landscape. Duchamp worked on the piece in secret for 20 years, while even his friends thought he had given up his art, and it was only revealed to the public when it was posthumously installed in the museum. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its first display, and in memory of the late director Anne dHarnoncourt, who oversaw the original installation as a 25-year-old assistant, the museum has organised this show of 80 studies, photographs, erotic objects and other documents.

  • Wax Tailor @ Blender Theater

  • Description: JC's stage name, Wax Tailor, originated in 2004 with the release of his EP “Lost The Way.” He subsequently released his first full-length album, “Tales Of The Forgotten Melodies,” completely on his own. The album garnered critical acclaim and love from French music fans and became one of the best selling electronic releases of the year. His next move was to take his show live, with a four-piece band, and find a way to translate the cinematic feel of his music through the use of video. Building on the solid foundation in France, Wax Tailor licensed “Tales” to Decon in 2006 for North American distribution and continued touring across the globe, opening up for the likes of Aceyalone & RJD2. In 2007-2008, in addition to the release of his sophomore effort, “Hope & Sorrow,” WT & his musiciens made a worldwide tour of a 200 shows. After the recording of “Seize the day” the main theme from “PARIS” (Cedric Klapisch last movie), he produced a remix for ASA (Jailer) & remixed a Nina Simone track
