Bay Area artist Tessie Scharage, Ray Beldner, Theodora Varney Jones and more are represented in The Seduction of Duchamp / Bay Area Artists’ Response exhibition at ArtZone 461 Gallery. The Gallery is pleased to be the San Francisco venue from January 9 through February 14, 2010 for the traveling exhibition. Independent curator Hanna Regev organized the show by inviting over thirty local artists to create new works representing their response to the influence and importance of Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968). He was the founder of Dadaism and closely associated with futurist and surrealist movements. The exhibition features a wide variety of art practices and media.

Fitting Duchampian theory and approach, ArtZone Director Steven Lopez will assist in curating this exhibition. It was first presented at the Slaughterhouse Space – an alternative art venue on the grounds of the Duchamp Winery in Healdsburg, CA. The show draws its inspiration from the historic 1949 West Coast Roundtable Discussion at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Duchamp was the main speaker and was joined by prominent invited guests for a discussion on Modern Art.
