Peripheral Relations: Marcel Duchamp and New Zealand Art 1960-2011 is a major exhibition organised by the Adam Art Gallery that explores the influence of Marcel Duchamp on New Zealand art, canvassing the history of Duchamp’s reception in New Zealand from 1960 to the present.

Drawing on the PhD research of guest curator Marcus Moore, the exhibition showcases seldom-seen works by Duchamp held at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa gifted to the museum as part of the Isaacs Bequest (1983), as well as referencing the ground-breaking exhibition of the Sisler Collection of Duchamp’s works that toured New Zealand in 1967.

These actual instances of Duchamp ‘in’ New Zealand are set alongside three generations of New Zealand artists who register a debt to his example. The show brings together works by 29 artists: Jim Allen, Billy Apple, Bruce Barber, g. bridle, L. Budd, Bill Culbert, Paul Cullen, Julian Dashper, Andrew Drummond, et al, Merit Gröting, Adrian Hall, Terrence Handscomb, Christine Hellyar, Giovanni Intra, Betty Isaacs, Julius Isaacs, Darcy Lange, Maddie Leach, Len Lye, Kieran Lyons, Daniel Malone, Julia Morison, Michael Parekowhai, Roger Peters, Malcolm Ross, Marie Shannon, Michael Stevenson, and Boyd Webb.

The exhibition is accompanied by a public programme that draws out a range of themes inherent in the topic, and a checklist with an introduction by Marcus Moore and notes on each artist.
