In the 1960s and 70s, Dada artist Marcel Duchamp (1987–1968) enjoyed late-life celebrity and was a major influence on Pop, Fluxus and Conceptual artists. This card announcing a new Duchamp documentary features a still from the film with artist Hannah Wilke (1940–93) that recreates Julian Wasser’s famous photo of Duchamp at his 1963 retrospective at the Pasadena Museum playing chess with a nude Eve Babitz.
