Richard Prince New Exhibition At The Guggenheim NY.
Richard Prince new exhibition “Spiritual America” at the Guggenheim NY, is a major retrospective spanning three decades, with an array of about 160 photographs, drawings, paintings and sculptures, most of which incorporate images or objects cribbed from popular culture.
The exhibition highlights Prince’s contributions to the development of contemporary art, bringing together key examples of his photographs, paintings, sculptures, and works on paper in an installation that integrates the various series comprising his oeuvre.
Mr. Prince was born in the Panama Canal Zone in 1949 and has shown in New York since the late 1970s. He is a leading member of the sprawling appropriation generation of the early ’80s that included artists like Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman and Jeff Koons and that continues to add new recruits, like Wayne Guyton and Kelly Walker.
