L’image volée, curated by Thomas Demand

Fondazione Prada Milan, 18.03.-28.08.16

http://www.fondazioneprada.org/projects/limage-volee/?lang=en
The exhibition revolves around the idea that we all stand on someone else’s shoulders, and explores how artists have always referred to existing imagery to make their own. Questioning the boundaries between originality, conceptual inventiveness and the culture of the copy, the project will focus on theft, authorship, annexation and the creative potential of such pursuits.

Situated in a special exhibition architecture by sculptor Manfred Pernice, the show will present 80 works realized by about 45 artists between 1820 and the present day, including commissions by John Baldessari, Oliver Laric and Sara Cwynar amongst others. An illustrated book will accompany the project, with essays by Russell Ferguson, Christy Lange, short stories by Ian McEwan and Ali Smith, and interventions by Rainer Erlinger and Don McLean, published by Fondazione Prada.

‚Organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and nonsite.org, „Photography and Philosophy“ is a two-day symposium exploring the themes of the autonomy of the photographic image, automatism, and time and meaning. Originally considered in nonsite’s online journal (issue 11), the topics will be expanded upon by leading artists, philosophers, and art historians through a series of formal presentations accompanied by engaged responses, as well as two larger panel discussions with curator-moderators. ‚
