Richard Prince: PoMo Redux

Love him or hate him, Richard Prince has become as much an object of culture as the images he is transmuting by recontextualizing. Spiritual America, which includes some of his most well known "borrowed images" will be on exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum thei spring.

From Visual Arts - Walker Arts Center

Nobody takes a good idea and makes it his own like Richard Prince, who has carved his place in contemporary art by recycling, reflecting, and reframing the imagery of others. His unique art of appropriation–from biker culture to car culture, comedians to cowboys, pinups to pulp fiction–redefined the creative process for a generation of artists.

Organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, Richard Prince: Spiritual America opens next week in galleries 4, 5, and 6. Tickets for the After Hours preview party on Friday, March 21 are still available.

Watershed: A Survey of The French Broad Watershed

SPE National Denver: Graduate Student Presentation by Jeff Rich.
The French Broad River in Western North Carolina is the third oldest river in the world, behind only the Nile and the New River in Virginia. It is even older than the Appalachian Mountains that surround it.
This work documents the uses of the French Broad River floodplain, its development and the constant change brought on by man's presence and natural causes. By looking at the river itself and the landscape of industry and inhabitation, this project emphasizes the need for responsible stewardship of the land to ensure its sustainable future.

The presentation will be held on:

Day: Saturday, March 15, 2008
Room: Governor’s Square 17
Time: 11:40 a – 12:00 p
