The Société Anonyme, which was founded in 1920 by Katherine Dreier, Man Ray, and Marcel Duchamp, was an experimental museum whose goal was to promote contemporary art to American audiences. The trio of artists produced more than 80 exhibitions between 1920-1940. Dreier eventually donated the collection to the Yale University Art Gallery in 1941.
