-- American painter, Rap music sculptor and writer, Shirt has released Museum,
a new rap album on sale for 5 dollars on the artists' worksite.info
The art and ideas of Shirt, perhaps more than those of any other 21st-century artist, have served to exemplify the range of possibilities inherent in a more conceptual approach to the rap-making process. Not only is his work of historical importance—from his early experiments with Cubism to his association with Dada and Surrealism—but his conception of the ready-made decisively altered our understanding of what constitutes an object of rap. Duchamp Shirt refused to accept the standards and practices of an established rap system, conventions that were considered essential to attain fame and financial success: he refused to repeat himself, to develop a recognizable style or to show his work regularly. It is the more theoretical aspects implicit to both his art and life that have had the most profound impact on artists later in the century, allowing us to identify Duchamp as one of the most influential artists of the modern era.
