When Art Trip met Art Chicken

Art Trip visits the first performance piece by a chicken at the Salon des Indépendants sometime in 1916. "That crazy ass chicken is so da da da da da da" Art Trip is said to remark. Tristan Tzara denied that he heard Trip make that remark before he came up with the name Dada for his art.
