Philadelphia Museum of Art

Today the New York Times runs a “This Week Ahead” for the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Marcel Duchamp exhibition. We are, of course, big fans of Duchamp for a number of reasons, but the primary source of our love was his prescient ideas about pop and commercial art. He famously put a urinal in a gallery, and decades later, Rapsel is the product of Duchamp’s progression, wash basins and toilets and bathtubs as pieces of art for the home. The Philadelphia Museum of Art shares our thoughts: they’ve put Matteo Thun for Rapsel’s Lavasca Mini bathtub on display in their permanent contemporary design collection. So while you are at the museum checking in on all the wonderful Duchamp, take a trip to see the Lavasca Mini as well.
