Artistic Landmarks In Contemporary Experience
“Alice,” the shortened form of “Artistic Landmarks In Contemporary Experience” refers to Duchamp’s belief that the artist can reach a more profound expression, when he/she “like Alice in wonderland, will
be led to pass through the looking-glass of the retina” (Ephemerides, March 20, 1969.) The shift from Duchamp’s idea of “profound expression” to the Alice Awards’ notion of “contemporary experience” reflects the idea that a great deal of today’s contemporary art is oriented towards experiential-based forms of participation.
