Sur Marcel Duchamp
par Robert Lebel


Robert Lebel (1901-1986) was a poet, novelist, essayist, art historian, and painting expert. He took part in the Surrealists’ activities and wrote Marcel Duchamp’s first monograph in 1959. This book is a facsimile of the original edition in French of Sur Marcel Duchamp Robert Lebel published in 1959 in Paris by Trianon Press. This historical book by Robert Lebel – the first to be published on Marcel Duchamp – is an introduction to the work and personality of a single artist but also a reconsideration of the situation of the painter in contemporary society and a thorough analysis of mobile creative activity. It is supplemented by texts by Marcel Duchamp, André Breton and HP Roché, a bibliography and a catalog raisonné of all the works of Duchamp and is profusely illustrated throughout with images in black and white and inserted, die-cut colour plates. The layout of this book was itself even created and designed by Marcel Duchamp himself and is beautifully reproduced and printed here on paper stocks and using production methods that reflect the qualities of the original book.

Specialism
David Blamey (Ed.)


It is widely assumed that everyone is ‘interdisciplinary’ nowadays, that we all work in the intersections of specialised disciplines. But if being flexible, multi-skilled and polymathic are the prerequisites to survival in today’s world, why do educators and art marketeers still find it imperative to maintain conditions of production that advocate specialist forms? The aim of this new anthology in the Occasional Table series is to critically reflect upon the role of specialism in art and society and to understand better how the claim of those who seek to transcend the parameters of specialisation contrasts to others who maintain that deep levels of achievement can only be attained within highly focused methods and forms.

Edited by David Blamey, Specialism includes texts by Matthew Cornford, Neil Cummings, Dan Fox, Anouchka Grose, Mingyuan Hu, Stephen Knott, Frances Loeffler, Nina Power, Rick Poynor, Alistair Rider, Andrew Robinson, Irit Rogoff and Ruth Sonderegger, Chris Watson, Jon Wozencroft and Ian Whittlesea.
