Pourquoi je vais au cinéma seul

Pourquoi je vais au cinéma seul Richard Prince - Pourquoi je vais au cinéma seul
First French translation of the 1983 artist's fiction book by Richard Prince.
American artist Richard Prince (born 1949 in Panama Canal Zone, lives and works in New York) recycles found materials from American popular culture, most often images from advertisement and magazine photography which he re-photographs, silkscreens, overpaints, frames, enlarges, or arranges in collages, playing with their somehow empty meaning. Citation, détournement, appropriation: any possible treatment of these clichés is explored and played with.
