about

Some Aesthetic Decisions is an exhibition featuring works by artists that explore issues of beauty, value, and judgment. One hundred years ago, Dada artist Marcel Duchamp forever changed the nature of art by anonymously submitting Fountain in 1917, a porcelain urinal signed “R. Mutt” as an artwork to the exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists in New York. The show organizers’ rejection of Fountain ignited a controversy that persists today about the definition of art and who gets to pass judgment.

The NSU Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale, Florida marks this centenary by organizing Some Aesthetic Decisions, a show of artworks by Cory Arcangel, John Baldessari, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sophie Calle, Duchamp, Judy Fiskin, Claire Fontaine, Mike Kelley, Jeff Koons, Joseph Kosuth, Jorge Pardo, Andy Warhol, and others. Curated by the NSU Art Museum’s director and chief curator Bonnie Clearwater.

Exhibition Schedule:

NSU Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale

May 14–September 3, 2017.
