Emily just sent me a link to an article about this exhibition at the Skarskedt gallery in London.
"A short history of ‘stealing’ in contemporary art
Nine artists – including Collier Schorr, Roe Ethridge, and Richard Prince – engage and grapple with the complexities of appropriation, representation, and authorship in a new exhibition.
Is appropriation stealing, borrowing, or manipulating creative license? Artists have been taking ideas and inspiration from other artists, or even cultures, for centuries. If you’re working with commercial imagery, does that belong to the corporation, the brand, the artist, even the model? The line is thin, continually up for debate, and always evolving."
