If I remember correctly, last semester Pollock and Duchamp came up a few times on various listservs as people who are hacks in the art world. So, in the spirit of investigation, it might be cool to check out their various biographies that are going to be featured on the Ovation TV channel this month. I personally feel that their contributions to the art world have been immense and profound.
"The Secret of Marcel Duchamp" will be featured tomorrow at 8 and 11 on the Ovation channel.
Jackson Pollock's biography will be featured on October 22, 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm, and October 23, 3:30 am (ok, so its not primetime!)
