Richard Prince. Untitled (Band) 2013-2014

nonauthor Richard Prince, publisher A+MBookstore, edition of 800 copie, 32 pp., size 21 x 30 cm, 2014

Known for pioneering re-photography and the appropriation of photographs in the 1970s, Richard Princes latest works, so-called band paintings comprised of CD and DVD stickers strategically chosen and placed over black-and-white pornographic images, are readily familiar. Less so are his new untitled works: minimalist, abstract shapes formed by rubber bands and newspaper clippings stapled onto paper or, in this case, the gallery wall. Published to coincide with a one-year exhibition at Le Case dArte di Pasquale Leccese in Milan, from September 2013, this book presents a series of installation views of these works.
