The centenary of the Readymade was celebrated in North Vancouver three years late! The impact that the 1961-62 Assemblage exhibition at MOMA had on Gordon Smith was revived when he saw the Duchamp show at Gagosian (New York) in 2014. Gordon transformed that experience into the notion that a group exhibition at the space bearing his name on the subject of the readymade would allow viewers a chance to reconsider the idea of the readymade in the context of local artistic practices. The eleven exhibiting artists were chosen by Gordon Smith: Arabella Campbell, Douglas Coupland, Stan Douglas, Gathie Falk, Geoffrey Farmer, Rodney Graham, Brian Jungen, Damian Moppett, Mina Totino, Ian Wallace and David Weir. The exhibition was curated by Bill Jeffries.
