The Jean Brown Collection of Dada, Surrealism, and Fluxus was one of the first comprehensive collections on twentieth-century art at the Getty Research Institute. From Marcel Duchamp and George Maciunas to the international network of artists with whom she corresponded, this exhibition reveals Jean Brown's intuitive and innovative collecting strategies as well as the relationships she saw among the works, connecting earlier avant-garde art to Fluxus, artists' books, mail art, and multiples.
