Lot Details

Richard Prince,
Good Revolution, 1992
Presentation gold record with engraved plaque mounted on C-print
Edition of 80
Signed and numbered
In custom frame 52,1 x 40,6 cm

Richard Prince is a postmodern pioneer of appropriation art, building upon the strategies of Duchamp and Warhol among others. His trademark technique of re-photographing readymade imagery from popular culture reveals the absurdity or unreality of the original image and refutes the notions of originality and authorship. In these early photographs, he was highlighting the fictive side of the media, the falsities that lay at its foundation. He was unveiling, exposing the truth of American life. He was showing the distance that lies between the fictional characters created by the media, which are often displayed as a representation of a brand, and that of real life.
