Fugitive Artist: The Early Work of Richard Prince, 1974–77

pulp, ink., Brooklyn, New York, 2007

Description

This catalog accompanied an exhibition of the early work of Richard Prince, an artist well known for his use of appropriated imagery. Prince originally disavowed authorship of this work, which is little known and has not been widely exhibited since its creation in the 1970s. Prince refused to be involved with the exhibition and we were consequently denied reproduction rights for almost all of the pieces. Despite this, we felt strongly that the catalog needed to integrate some kind of visual representation of the work that also made light of our unique and slightly absurd inability to actually include it. Empty picture boxes, drawn to scale, run throughout as figure illustrations, standing in for the pieces that we were not allowed to reproduce.

Juror Notes

Beautiful back matter. The inclusion of the “missing” artwork provides the perfect visual foil to the text while acknowledging content.
