A recent article on ArtDaily.org promises "'Original' Reproductions by Marcel Duchamp at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art" and provides a precis of the relationship between authenticity, "assistance" and the readymade that is both elegant and penetrating. However, "its context is not quite clear." Is the Tel Aviv Museum hosting a Duchamp show? There is as yet no sign of this on the museum's site, unless perhaps it is part of the evocative circulating library of reproductions. The nuances would perhaps not be lost on Duchamp himself, who carried his own museum of genuine copies in a suitcase, always ready for a gala opening.
