Call for Artists: 'Marcello's Art Factory' in The Hague, Netherlands

Call for Artists: Urban Ready Mades Marcello's Art Factory, den Haag, NL Netherlands
'Marcello's Art Factory' in The Hague, Netherlands is currently hosting a project entitled 'Urban Ready Mades' which comes from the concept of 'ready mades' made famous by artist Marcel Duchamp who was the first to introduce this oevre . Duchamp shook the established art scene and it's foundations by assembling a bike wheel on a bar stool and presenting this as art. Four years later he did it again by signing a urnal 'Fountain' under the alias R. Mutt and sending this to an art show as an artwork. In December 2004, Duchamp's 'Fountain' was voted the most influential artwork of the 20th century by 500 selected British art world professionals. This concept was successfully adapted by such later artists as Andy Warhol with his 'Brillo Box' and 'Campbell's Soup Cans'. - Read Indepth Article at http://www.absolutearts.com/
