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 echos of other images, yet unquestionably his own.

An innovator of a critical genre of art history — appropriation— Prince is an avid collector, committed to chronicling American subculture perspectives.

Marking the first museum exhibition of the work, MOCAD will display a series of New Portraits by Richard Prince, featured in the museum’s largest gallery.
Richard Prince: Portraits is curated by Elysia Borowy-Reeder, Executive Director.



Richard Prince et al.

Feelings. Kunst und Emotionen (group)
Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich
8 November 2019 – 4 October 2020

The exhibition "FEELINGS" seeks to encourage this direct dialogue between artwork and viewer in order to stimulate an intense emotional engagement. The works exhibited are characterized by enigmatic motifs and atmospheric visual spaces. Joy, excitement, anger, revulsion, sadness, and numerous other emotional reactions may ensue upon viewing the works. The choice of exhibits is subjective; the art his- torical context and explanatory wall texts have been deliberately omitted. "FEELINGS" wishes to subvert these threshold fears, for intuition represents an essential approach to art. After all, the creation of a work is also based on personal experience. "FEELINGS" seeks to highlight this perspective on art. Work by Richard Prince is included.
