Marcel Duchamp meets the 104th U.S. Congress in “Windows on Greene Street – 1995

Three installations composed of a painting: “Newt Descending a Staircase”, a large Plexiglas: “The Mother Stripped Bare by her Congress, Even”, and a cage filled with toilet tissue “Why Not Squeeze?”, comprise “Windows on Greene” in SoHo for the summer of 1995.

In collaboration with the mysterious “Errors Selavy,” I have translated her penchant for puns and her frustrations with the current political climate into a display of Duchampian wit.
