La Boîte-en-Valise, is an online exhibition that takes place in a reconstruction (by a Dutch carpenter), of Marcel Duchamp’s 1941 famous mini-retrospective work “La Boite-en-Valise.” The exhibition features the work of 39 artists and will run from January 9th thru February 20th, 2021. La Boîte-en-Valise is a project by Office Baroque and was curated by Wim Peeters and Marie Denkens.
La Boîte-en-Valise was born out of the question on how to bring art to people in times when we cannot travel, currently due to COVID-19 restrictions. As much a reflection on the condition of confinement, La Boîte-en-Valise is also a reflection on showing and viewing art online and an oddball attempt at finding new ways to connect art and people in meaningful ways.
