This Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m., the Visual & Critical Studies Department will present The Case for Appropriation: A Panel Moderated by Joy Garnett. Here is a description from SVA’s event announcement:
Artist and NEWSgrist blogger Joy Garnett is joined in conversation by curator Christopher Phillips, art historian and attorney Virginia Rutledge, critic and curator Robert Storr, and artist Oliver Wasow to discuss the creative methods and ideas associated with appropriation art today, as issues of appropriation enter the broader public and legal debate forum and copyright infringement lawsuits between artists rise. The panelists will discuss why appropriation and other forms of visual referencing are important elements of making art and how to defend these practices both in and beyond the courtroom.
The Case for Appropriation will take place at the SVA Theatre at 333 West 23rd Street, and is free and open to the public.
