DESCRIPTION

Appropriation in art addresses issues of originality, authenticity and authorship. The intentional borrowing, copying or alteration of the images of others is often a commentary on consumerism, popular culture, society or even the art world itself. Some artists famous for working with appropriation in the world of photography are Sherrie Levine, Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince, and Shepard Fairey.
