In his series of chess paintings, British artist Tom Hackney translates the chess games of influential artist and self-avowed chess fanatic Marcel Duchamp into vivid geometric abstractions.
Also on view will be 18 photographs, periodicals, works of art, and pieces of ephemera related to Duchamp’s legacy in chess from the World Chess Hall of Fame permanent collection and various private collections.
Join us for the opening reception, which will include welcome remarks by Shannon Bailey, World Chess Hall of Fame Chief Curator, at 6:30 p.m. followed by brief comments by the artist.
