Appropriation

Many influential artists today draw on a legacy of 'stealing' images and forms from other makers. The term appropriation is particularly associated with the 'Pictures' generation, centred on New York in the 1980s, yet this anthology draws on a far wider context. Historically, it reappraises a diverse lineage of precedents - from the Dadaist readymade to Situationist detournement - while contemporary 'art after appropriation' is considered from multiple perspectives within a global context.
