Abstract: Celebrating the centenary of Duchamp's Fountain (1917) and bicentenary of Armitage Shanks (1817), Fountain 17 was a touring exhibition of works by artists invited to respond to Duchamp's iconic readymade, at Hull’s Humber Street Gallery in 2017. Minott exhibited two artworks in the Fountain 17 exhibition: The Bride Stripped Barr (2016), a mixed media sculpture which superimposes a scaled redrawing of Duchamp's The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even (1915-1923) against Alfred Barr Jr.'s Cubism and Abstract Art diagram (1936); and The Genuine Bears This Signature (More Sustaining Than Meat) (2016), a sequence of seven facsimile chocolate bars in mixed media, alongside extracts from Duchamp's White Box notes (1912-20) regarding Appearance and Apparition, which uses the moulding of chocolate as a metaphorical device. Minott was also invited to contribute an essay, 'Marcel Duchamp and Graphic Design', for the accompanying publication, and to provide the opening lecture entitled 'Fountain: A Delay in Porcelain'. This Collection comprises a multi-component output with contextualising information, documenting the central outputs, the two exhibited artworks displayed at the group touring exhibition. Contextualising information includes a 300-word statement, research timeline, and research questions, along with an essay and a lecture created for Fountain 17. Projects and texts stemming from Minott’s extensive Duchamp research are also documented, including Minott’s film The Oculist’s Dentist.
