Our Author: Nic Brun Perhaps it was the lipstick…
One day in 1917 a man submitted his peculiar contribution for a modern art exposition: a signed a urinal.
The man was Marcel Duchamp and with his work was inaugurating conceptual art and changing aestethics forever. Since then we want art to outrage us, to force us to follow unusual thought-paths and to grow free of the bi-dimensional space of a canvas.
Starting from October visitors will be able to appreciate the works of this intriguing artists at the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, which can be easily reached from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes: just take the red subway line and get off at Flaminio and walk through Villa Borghese to get there.
