ABSTRACT
The article discusses the art ideas of French artist Marcel DuChamp in the museum setting. Scholars and artists continue to savor the ramifications of Duchamp's bold move which has been interpreted as exposing the hypocrisy of the art world and emphasizing choice or selection over craftsmanship. Duchamp challenged his fellow artists to give equal weight to the conceptual nature of art, implying that the quality identified as art is not something intrinsic to a certain class of objects but rather that art is a value or idea that may be assigned to certain objects.
