It is inadvisable to shoot in the dark — but it sometimes seems to bring results
We are gladit did in this case. A letter to Cordier 6r Ekstrom Gallery, New York, in September 1965,where a Marcel Duchamp retrospective exhibition had just been presented, triggered achain of events leading to the landing of a Marcel Duchamp exhibition in Auckland inApril 1967, to commence a New Zealand tour —then to Australia and possibly Japan.We would like to thank Mrs Mary Sisler of New York who has generously made hercollection available; Mr Alan Solomon, Director, The Exhibition of American Art atMontreal;The Arts Council of Great Britain, from whose comprehensive catalogue
'Thealmost complete works of Marcel Duchamp'
the present catalogue has been compiledand who kindly supplied photographs for reproduction; The Queen Elizabeth II TheSecond Arts Council of New Zealand under whose sponsorship the exhibition is beingtoured in New Zealand.G. C. Docking
