For 30 years now, the American artist Richard Prince has been considered one of the most forward-thinking and innovative artists in the world. In 1977, his deceptively simple act of re-photographing advertising images from "The New York Times Magazine" and presenting them as his own ushered in an entirely new, critical approach to making art--one that questioned notions of ...more
