March 19, 2012Richard Prince at Museo Picasso Malaga
Richard Prince approaches the subject of Picasso in this exhibition by using a tactic of radical cannibalisation of the artist, causing the spectator to feel somewhat alienated and warning us to revise our perceptions and conventional views on the desire. Growing recognition of Prince’s work by the professional art world, while not devoid of controversy, has made him one of the most closely-watched artists on the international contemporary art scene.

Jackson Pollock was one of the leaders of the Abstract Expressionist movement, the quintessentially vanguard art movement in America.

After the Musée du Louvre and the Château de Versailles where Jan Fabre’s and Jeff Koons’ works were respectively presented, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France also opts for contemporary creation, inviting the worldwide famous American artist, Richard Prince. Especially well-known for his cow boy photographs illustrating Marlboro advertising campaigns and for his series of ‘nurse’ paintings, the artist is the best at depicting the American fin de siècle. This is the first monographic exhibition on Richard Prince organised in Paris.
