April 2016

by Nathalie Azoulai

We all stand on someone else’s shoulders, says the new Fondazione Prada’s exhibition entitled L’image volée, especially artists who need to refer to previous imagery to make their own. Questioning the boundaries between originality, invention and imitation, the group show curated by Thomas Demand, a German artist born in 1964) focuses on theft, authorship, annexation and intercreativity. 80 works by about 63 artists between 1820 and the present day will be shown, including commissions by John Baldessari, Oliver Laric and Sara Cwynar amongst others. In Milan from March 18 to August 28.
