7 March – 22 April
The great thing about appropriation is that even though the transformation reads as fiction, everybody knows that the source of the appropriation was at some point non-fiction, (magazine, movie, etc.), and it’s these sources, or elements of non-fiction, that gives the picture, no matter how questionable, its believable edge’ – Richard Prince.
Skarstedt, London is delighted to announce the exhibition, Double Take
which 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.
