“Triple Carbs Society (The Built-in Kitchen of M. Duchamp)”
We are revisiting Marco Bruzzone’s exhibition at SMU in which he explores the idea of the kitchen space as the center of family life; an exploration of how life begins with every meal. To do so, Bruzzone re-enacted (with students from the University) M. Duchamp’s meals at a little italian restaurant during his time spent in New York. Bruzzone re-imagines Donald Judd’s Picnic table and simultaneously curates a show whitin the installation.
