The National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C will exhibit "Inventing Marcel Duchamp: The Dynamics of Portraiture" from March 27, 2009 to August 2, 2009.  The exhibit features portraits and self-portraits of Duchamp, many of which have never been exhibited before, in order to "demonstrate that Duchamp harnessed the power of portraiture and self-portraiture both to secure his reputation as an iconoclast and to establish himself as a major figure in the art world".  The work  featured ranges from 1912 to the present,  including works by Man Ray, Andy Warhol, and Francis Picabia.
