Duchamp's Fountain was rejected by the Society of Independent Artists for its New York exhibition. The artist then published an anonymous article with a photograph of the urinal, thus establishing the work as an item that is now discussed in terms of art history. The original urinal has disappeared.

The exhibition is a joint production with the Centre Georges Pompidou. For more information phone +377 98 98 91 26 and visit the venue website at: NMNM: Saadane Afif, The Fountain Archives 2008-2017.
