Floor Plan

The first of a two-part exhibition, this part features the recent gift of over 50 major historical artworks, including more than 35 seminal works by Duchamp, promised to the museum by Washington, D.C., collectors Barbara and Aaron Levine. This transformative gift marks the Hirshhorn as one of the largest public holdings of Duchamp works in the nation.

The second stage of the exhibition, on view April 18, 2020 – Oct. 12, 2020, examines Duchamp’s lasting impact through the lens of the Hirshhorn’s permanent collection, including significant works by a diverse roster of modern and contemporary artists.
