A group of 51 artists from all over the world are celebrating the art of the everyday object at the Museum of Arts and Design’s exhibit “Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary”. In the spirit of Marcel Duchamp’s “Readymades”, these artists transform items that would normally blend invisibly into the background of daily life into stimulating works of art. Using found and mass-produced things like vinyl records, dog tags, thread and telephone books as their raw material, they have squeezed out new meaning, and beauty from ordinary stuff.  The show runs till April 19 at the Museum’s new Columbus Circle location.
