One-man museum

Artist Marcel Duchamp began to design the ultimate portable museum in 1935. Boite en Valise was a travelling exhibition of his oeuvre, a suitcase which contained his principal works in miniature - from paintings and drawings to objects and readymades. The suitcase allowed him to avoid dissipating his work throughout various galleries and maintain strict curatorial control.

A new exhibition of his portable museums opens at Entwhistle Art Gallery, 6 Cork St, London W1X (0171-734 6440) 21 May-27 Jun
