As part of a year-long ambit through the Portland Art Museum, Oregon-based bloggers LaValle and Amy are taking an extended look at the 1960 ("red") copy of Boite-en-valise housed there. The process of "unpacking" Duchamp's miniature retrospective has prompted discussion of Rrose Selavy's nebulous co-authorship of two of the works on display, personal reflections on the seductions of chess, and a satisfyingly dense array of portraits, links to audio and video, and, of course, a few of the individual works within the Valise itself abstracted from their museum environment.
