|Jan-01-13|| ||SBC: I just wanted to give the updated URL for my page on Chess and the Surrealists (and Dadaists, of course):
and some more of Surrealists:
On the lady artists of that time:
a little more on Duchamp:
|Mar-19-13|| ||Conrad93: A revolutionary! He showed the world how bad art can get without losing the name of "art."|
Now all a class of amateurs need is some philosophical nonsense behind their "masterpieces" and the public will flock to see their hard work, if it can be called that.
|Jul-28-13|| ||duchamp64: Happy Birthday Marcel! Celebrate your day "With Hidden Noise".|
|Jul-29-13|| ||redlance: Happy Birthday!!!|
|Jul-29-13|| ||offramp: "I am not dead. I am in Herne Bay."|
|Aug-08-13|| ||GumboGambit: According to Rybka, his move into Dadaism was a wasted effort and lost a tempo.|
|Oct-12-13|| ||Penguincw: ♔ Quote of the Day ♔
< "I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art -- and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position." >
|Oct-24-13|| ||Penguincw: ♔ Quote of the Day ♔
< "The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem." >
I like how Duchamp treats chess as an art (or art as chess).
|Oct-25-13|| ||Penguincw: ♔ Quote of the Day ♔
< "Chess players are madmen of a certain quality, the way the artist is supposed to be, and isn't, in general." >
I guess it's time for Duchamp to have his quotes featured. Tartakower could be next.
|Oct-27-13|| ||Penguincw: ♔ Quote of the Day ♔
< "Not all artists may be chess players, but all chess players are artists." >
I remember this quote!
|Mar-09-14|| ||offramp: It reminds me of the famous quote, <All Irishmen are kings but not all kings are Irishmen.>|
|Mar-09-14|| ||Stonehenge: Electronic music and chess:
|Jul-28-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to artist and chess master, Marcel Duchamp.|
|Aug-25-14|| ||ColeTrane: L.H.O.O.Q.
|Apr-18-15|| ||MissScarlett: It's a pity the score of the simul game he lost to Capablanca in 1922 in New York didn't survive. I can see it now: <The Champ vs Duchamp>|
|Apr-30-15|| ||TheFocus: <The Chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chessboard, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem> - Marcel Duchamp.|
|May-02-15|| ||TheFocus: <Chess is a sport. A violent sport> - Duchamp, Marcel.|
|May-02-15|| ||TheFocus: <I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position> - Duchamp, Marcel.|
|May-23-15|| ||TheFocus: < Beauty in chess is closer to beauty in poetry; the chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts, and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chessboard, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem. Actually, I believe that every chess player experiences a mixture of two aesthetic pleasures: first, the abstract image akin to the poetic idea of writing; secondly, the sensuous pleasure of the ideographic execution of that image on the chessboard. From my close contact with artists and chess players, I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists> - Marcel Duchamp - August 30, 1952, address to the New York State Chess Association.|
|May-24-15|| ||TheFocus: <I play chess every day and night, and nothing interests me more than finding the right move> - Marcel Duchamp.|
|May-28-15|| ||TheFocus: <All this twaddle, the existence of God, atheism, determinism, liberation, societies, death, etc., are pieces of a chess game called language, and they are amusing only if one does not preoccupy oneself with 'winning or losing' this game of chess> - Marcel Duchamp.|
|Jul-17-15|| ||ljfyffe: Duchamp, with 9 points out of a possible 10 placed first at the 1933-34 correspondence IFSB
league championship; he had two draws, one with E. Weiss and the other with Kracke, both of Germany.|
|Jul-28-15|| ||grasser: "Player of the Day" July 28, 2015. Like he is not famous enough. How about a Chess Teacher who was put on trial and fined $500 for offering free lessons without a "Permit"? When does he get "Player of the day? G Grasser vs L Winokur, 2014"?|
|Aug-05-15|| ||MissScarlett: <t is regarded as one of the most important artworks of the 20th century.|
The urinal displayed in an exhibition in New York in 1917 - is recognised as the first piece of conceptual art.
But a new exhibition in Edinburgh claims the work was not made by Marcel Duchamp but by a little-known female artist.>
|Sep-01-15|| ||Tomlinsky: <Duchamp Chess Set is a 3D-printed chess set generated from an archival photograph of Marcel Duchamp's own custom and hand-carved game. His original physical set no longer exists. We have resurrected the lost artifact by digitally recreating it, and then making the 3D files available for anyone to print. |
Inspired by Marcel Duchamp's readymade - an ordinary manufactured object that the artist selected and modified for exhibition - the readymake brings the concept of the appropriated object to the realm of the internet, exploring the web's potential to re-frame information and data, and their reciprocal relationships to matter and ideas. Readymakes transform photographs of objects lost in time into shared 3D digital spaces to provide new forms and meanings.
