“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.
“Double Take” showcases works by artists who work and have worked with appropriation in photography as a mean of conveying a message. It presents a dialogue between some of the artists of the Pictures Generation and some artists of the younger federation.
