"Another Look: Appropriation In Art" Art Exhibit

Since the turn of the 20th century, artists have appropriated imagery from well-known works of art, commodities and the media in order to make a statement about art’s relationship to, and place within, our world. The artists included in this installation use appropriation in their own way and for their own purposes, addressing themes of identity, politics, economics, history and nostalgia. Central to all of these works are questions of originality and the processes that go into making art. This installation includes works from the Nasher Museum’s collection by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Alice Wagner, Vik Muniz, Alexander Kosolapov and others. Admission $5, $4 seniors, $3 non-Duke students with student ID.
