Allen Ruppersberg billboard over the high line
John Stanley Untitled (After Richard Prince)
Interesting project about appropriation:
I would like to take my photograph of Richard Prince’s Untitled Cowboy and print it on at least one billboard in Los Angeles. Reclaiming the image and publishing it in an advertising format without any advertising goals will bring the image full circle Ad to Art to Ad Art.
I also believe that the printing of this famous image in some of the high art capitols will highlight the absurdity of older concepts of art and ownership in an age of digital reproduction. - John Stanley
