Building a Duchamp Research Portal at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

A planning grant for the development of an online research portal for digitized archival materials created by or related to the artist Marcel Duchamp.

Home to the largest and most significant collection of Marcel Duchamp artwork in the world, as well as an unparalleled collection of Duchamp-related archival materials, the Philadelphia Museum of Art seeks a one-year planning grant to pursue the first online research portal for digitized archival and reference materials created by or related to the artist. This work will be undertaken in collaboration with the Association Marcel Duchamp and the Musée National d'Art Moderne and Bibliothèque Kandinsky at Paris's Centre Georges Pompidou. Planning activities include consultation with copyright and technical specialists; collections surveys; and a meeting of an Advisory Board, representing Duchamp scholars, arts institutions, and technology and humanities advisors to formalize plans for designing, creating, and maintaining the Research Portal. A comprehensive white paper will document all planning efforts and guide project implementation.
