Artist Richard Prince is successful artist who has built his entire career on appropriation, but recently he has been making waves for a new exhibition at New York’s Frieze Art Fair. According to Bloomberg Business: “The show consisted of about three dozen photos that were copies of other people’s Instagram posts, a mix of images from celebrities and ordinary people. Prince enlarged them, printed them out on inkjet paper, and added a cryptic comment at the bottom of each. Then he reportedly sold the images for $90,000 a piece.”
