Additional Information

A one page exhibition catalog created by Duchamp, it listed all 212 items in Dada exhibitions at the Sidney Janis Gallery from April 15, 1916 to May 9, 1923. The text DADA 1916-1923 sidney j a n i s 15east57 new york april 15 may 9 1953 is in orange block text. DADADADADA is written along the borders in orange block lettering. It includes four short essays printed in text by Arp, Tzara, Huelsenbeck and Levesque. The work was intended by Duchamp to be crumpled and thrown away, thus many copies of the print are haphazardly folded or crumpled and most were actually discarded.
