Special Exhibition Image Gallery: Dada at MoMA - New York

June 18 to September 11, 2006 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York

By

The first major museum exhibition in the United States to focus exclusively on the brief but hugely influential movement, Dada surveys the six principal cities in which its artists worked between 1916 and 1924. This exhibition represents nearly fifty artists in over 400 pieces including paintings, collage, photomontage, readymade constructions, photographs and printed matter.

Appropriately, New York City Dada was something of a "melting pot" of styles. The arrivals of Marcel Duchamp, Jean Crotti and Francis Picabia, in 1915, formed the nucleus of the Dadaists who would cheerfully avail themselves of the United States' bounty of machines and manufactured objects. The New York section of Dada concentrates on readymade objects, new technology (as with airbrushing) and graphic works reminiscent of mechanical drawing.
