To mark the 50th anniversary of the International Exhibition of Modern Art, the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute in Utica, New York reunited three hundred of the works that were in the original show. Duchamp, who was not only on the loans committee for the event and spoke there, also designed the poster, which features an image of his once infamous painting.
