Richard Prince & Instagram
It all began in the 1980s when Prince would re-photograph existing portraits of his friends, but soon developed into Tumblr and Instagram thanks to Prince's young, tech-savvy daughter. If you look closely you'll also find that it's Richard Prince's comments that soar to the top of the list on Instagram. All sorts of celebrities and unknowns have fallen victim to Prince's practice, but the mischievous artist has always argued that his work is the same as Andy Warhol pinching the image of Marilyn Monroe or a can of Campbell's soup.
Richard Prince's work has always garnered extreme reactions, and we expect nothing less from this new exhibition in London at Gagosian. Pay a visit and decide for yourself if this is contemporary art at its best or just plain old stealing.
