Malcolm Lubliner in 1962 received an MFA from The Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. In 1966 he headed the graduate painting and drawing department at UC Long Beach but the following year decided to change careers and opened his first commercial photography studio. 

From 1968 to1978 he was the contract photographer for Gemini GEL in Los Angeles, the premier publisher of limited edition art works, and was the principle photographer for Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s renowned Art and Technology Program, both of which provided the opportunity of working with many of the world’s best-known visual artists.

His artwork has been primarily photographic and follows three related themes. In the mid 1970’s, he produced a series of automobile portraits titled, “Automotive Research” that expressed the peculiar pictorial relationship between cars and their urban settings. From the early 1990’s to the present, he concentrated on a series of urban images under the heading “The Anxious Landscape”, also looking at the peculiar and ironic ways we humans affect the environment.

In the 1980’s and currently, his work is on a series of photographic assemblages; small, theater-like stagings, using arrangements of both traditional and non-traditional objects and materials.

“This construction is a parody of Duchamp’s last painting Tu m’ (1918).


It presents several opportunities for reinterpretation using visual puns and the title, like much of Duchamp’s work, is mysterious causing speculation that it refers to his being bored with visual beauty and the act of painting itself.  One irony is that Duchamp was a brilliant painter, another is that the work never received extensive attention since it was apparently the birth place of several of his most innovative ideas.

The title, Duchamp Prêt-a-Porter translates to Ready To Wear or Ready Made and refers to the manufactured objects Duchamp exhibited as art.”     Malcolm Lubliner
