Building a Duchamp Research Portal at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Philadelphia Museum of Art respectfully requests a three-year $350,000 NEH Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Implementation Grant to support the creation of an online research portal to provide access to digitized archival materials created by or related to Marcel Duchamp. The Duchamp Research Portal will unify the Museum's voluminous digitized holdings with those of our two partner institutions—the Association Marcel Duchamp and the Musée national d'art moderne Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris)—making the bulk of Duchamp's archival materials, consisting of approximately 60,516 documents, accessible and discoverable through a single interface built on Linked Open Data. The Portal will constitute a learning resource of incalculable value, one we anticipate will generate substantial new contributions to scholarship on the life and work of one of the twentieth century's most significant artists.
