Tom Hackney: The Thought Game (le jeu mental)

Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp, Cully

20 November - 22 January 2017 


Tom Hackney’s works are directly related to Marcel Duchamp’s concept of the instantaneous state of rest but in a style of painting characteristic of the Zürich Concrete artists, not only giving the idea of ‘movement’ a new dimension but also embracing a fruitful reason for the appropriation or reanimation of abstract painting today. Stefan Banz, 2016

The Association Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp was founded was founded by Caroline Bachmann and Stefan Banz in 2009, with the aim of organizing a symposium and an international event devoted to Marcel Duchamp and the forestay waterfall. 

The KMD is an homage to Marcel Duchamp’s Box in a Valise. It is situated on the shore of Lac Léman, not far from the Forestay waterfall, which the artist photographed in 1946 as the starting point of his last masterpiece étant donnés: 1° la chute d’eau, 2° le gaz d’éclairage. The KMD is the world’s “smallest” museum and shows “great” exhibitions of internationally renowned and emerging artists. KMD editions publishes hard-cover books (art theory, monographs, artists’ books, and exhibition catalogues) in its famous miniature scale and also in standard, larger formats.
