Did anyone see the story of the Neo-Dadaist who attacked the Marcel Duchamp "Urinal" at the Centre Pompidou "Dada" exhibition in Paris? The show closed yesterday in preparation for travel to the National Gallery in Washington DC, where it opens, in a reduced form, next month. This artist decided to make a statement and took a hammer to one of the most famous, important pieces of 20th Century Art! Managed to chip the sculpture and they are assessing the damage. It certainly brought some added publicity to an already extremely popular exhibition. Wonder what the real Dadaists think?
