Jennifer Shahade, two-time winner of the World Chess Championship and contibuter to the book "Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Chess", recently recreated a famous 1963 photograph of Duchamp.  The original photograph, which was taken by Julian Wasser at the Pasadena Art Museum, showed Duchamp playing chess against a naked woman.  Shahade's version is a video instead of a photo and shows her playing against a naked man.  The game they play is based on a game Duchamp won against E. Smith.  Shahade also interrupts the game to talk about her resarch on Duchamp and his chess playing.
