Dada and inspirations at the Tate

A truly great exhibition opened this week at The Tate Modern in London looking at the relationship between the great surrealist Marcel Duchamp and composer John Cage, choreographer Merce Cunningham and the artists Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns.

The exhibition starts with Duchamp’s paintings and moves through to piano performances of Cage’s music, paintings and sculptures by Johns and Rauschenberg, and sections devoted to chance, chess, the readymade and the remade object, and live presentations of Cunningham’s dances.

It is a hugely successful mixture of artistic disciplines, time frames and compulsory for anyone who has ever had interest in Dadaism, its impact – or any of the men’s work.
