November 1, 2016 - Bruce Hainley

On July 28, 2016, Richard Prince retweeted an item from curator Marvin Heiferman's feed about a $1 billion copyright-infringement suit that photographer Carol Highsmith had just filed against the stock-photo agencies Getty and Alamy, charging "gross misuse." Earlier that day, Prince had tweeted a picture of a slightly enlarged black-and-white photocopy of this short 1977 text "Practicing Without a License." He commented: "Feel like I got hacked.

Richard Prince: The Douglas Blair Turnbaugh Collection (1977-1988), June 11 - July 16 at Edward Cella Art & Architecture. 

"Artist Richard Prince is no stranger to controversy. An early pioneer of appropriation art, Prince spent the 1970's and 80's undermining the necessity of authorship in art, re-photogrpahing exisitng images and modifying them only minimally to make them his own. ... With an uncanny ability to tranform the context an dmeaning of an image with a simple gesture or minimal material intervention, Prince established himself as an expert in confiscation and concision."
