Curated by artist, art theorist, and Corcoran College of Art and Design professor Mark Cameron Boyd, [email protected] celebrates the 100th anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s readymade concept. This juried exhibition includes contemporary artist’s submissions of “new” readymades that significantly expand upon Duchamp’s originary idea, thus celebrating Duchamp’s vision and developing the concept.

Photographer Susan Ren grew up in Columbia, MD (where she often felt misplaced) and graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (where she felt only a little less misplaced). She is now a Baltimore-based visual artist, photographer, writer, cat lover, and DIY-enthusiast in a city that feels right.
