Introduction

Since the 1970’s, Richard Prince (born 1949) has been redefining concepts of authorship and ownership through extensive reference to and appropriation of images from advertising, mass media, and entertainment. Prince’s work investigates humor, pulp fiction, soft-core porn, and subcultures such as cowboys, bikers, customized cars, and celebrities, and their impact on the construction of the American identity.   

Prince’s work has been the subject of major solo exhibitions at institutions such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museum Boymans–Van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Haus der Kunst, Munich; MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Vienna; Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris; and Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria. His works are currently held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Goetz Collection in Munich, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, among many others.

Richard Prince has collaborated with Two Palms since 2007.
