ASX.TV: Richard Prince – “Spiritual America” (2007)

The ASX Team

James Kalm is pleases to bring viewers exclusive unauthorized footage of this major exhibition. Richard Prince’s style is one of the most recognizable in contemporary art. Since the late seventies, with his series of appropriated advertising photos, most notably the “Marlborough Man” images, Prince has used his particular perspective to critique American culture. Much of the resonance of the work comes from his recycling and redevelopment of previous motifs repeated, like his bawdy joke lines, until they become self-referentially antonymous. Opening statements by Thomas Krens and Nancy Spector.
