What Is Appropriation Art?

Deborah Goldberg. Meet at Katharina Fritsch, Madonnenfigur (Madonna Figure) (1981-1989)

Thursday, August 15, 2013, 1:30 p.m.

Contemporary Galleries, second floor

In the 1980s many artists created appropriation art, starting with readymade objects and images. In this session, explore the meaning of this art and how it derives from earlier movements like Dada and Pop art.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
