Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RICHARD PRINCE Photographs 1977-1979
February 21 - April 20, 2001


Skarstedt Fine Art is pleased to announce the exhibition of Richard Prince’s Photographs 1977-1979. This exhibition will assemble the photographs that initiated Prince’s exploration of "authorship" and "the original," ideas that were as prevalent in the critical discourse of the late 1970's as they are today.

By manipulating the means and products of mass media, Prince gives his viewers a glimpse of American culture as directed towards middle-class consumers. His appropriations of living rooms, watches and sophisticated couples turn the informative nature of the original advertisement into cultural indicators of a borrowed and fictional representation. As Kate Linker stated in Art Magazine, November 1982:

None of Richard Prince’s images are unfamiliar; they are taken from the classic icons of product fetishism and satisfied desire that appear in the advertising and travel-leisure sections of magazines. Prince selects them both for their typicality and for their strangeness or unreality- for their overloaded intensity, the hyped-up, extra-ed super-real extravagance of their particulars, which are carefully naturalized as real.

Prince has had extensive gallery and museum exhibitions since 1979. Prince's art was the subject of a retrospective, Richard Prince, at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York in 1992. In 1993 there were exhibitions at the Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Richard Prince: Fotos, Schilderijen, Objecten; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; and Kunstverein and Kunsthalle, Dusseldorf, Germany. Prince also participated in the 1985 and 1997 Whitney Biennial exhibitions and Documenta IX, 1992 in Kassel, Germany. Forthcoming in December 2001 there will be a solo exhibition at the Museum fur Gegenwartskunst, Basel, Switzerland.
