Published on the occasion of Double Take , this catalogue features insightful artist texts and interviews as well as full colour images. The exhibition looks at the theme of appropriation and how it has been explored by different generations of artists using photography. With the democratisation of the image through social media and the internet in today’s digital age, Double Take explores the continued power of pictures in shaping ideas of identity, gender, race, desire and sexuality.
Including works by leading artists from the 1960s to the present day, the exhibition takes as its starting point Robert Heinecken’s seminal series of photograms Are You Rea , 1964 – 68, as well as works by ‘Pictures Generation’ artists, including Richard Prince, Barbara Kruger and Louise Lawler, who came of age during the media-driven consumer culture of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Alongside these artists, the exhibition also showcases works by a younger generation, including Anne Collier, Roe Ethridge, Collier Schorr, Steven Shearer and Hank Willis Thomas, whose interests reflect those of their predecessors, whilst also presenting their own unique take on appropriation.
