Richard Prince
Portraits

October 25, 2019–January 5, 2020
Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit
mocadetroit.org

Mining images from advertising, social media, and entertainment since the late 1970s, Richard Prince has redefined concepts of authorship, ownership, and aura. Applying his understanding of the complex issues surrounding representation in the context of contemporary art, he has developed a unique signature—one filled with echoes of other images, yet unquestionably his own.

This exhibition celebrates the institution’s extensive twentieth-century holdings through the eyes of six contemporary artists, all of whom have contributed to shaping the museum’s history with their own pivotal solo shows: Cai Guo-Qiang, Paul Chan, Jenny Holzer, Julie Mehretu, Richard Prince, and Carrie Mae Weems. Through collection highlights and rarely seen works from the turn of the century to 1980, this presentation includes nearly three hundred paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and installations selected by the six artists that engage with the cultural discourse of their time. Work by Francis Bacon, Willem de Kooning, and Lawrence Weiner is included.
