An Original Who Put a New Spin on Imitation: MOMA exhibits the works of the late TC alumna Elaine Sturtevant
As reported in The New York Times, "Sturtevant: Double Trouble,” a retrospective on the work of Elaine Sturtevant (M.A. '75), has opened the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and will run through February 22, 2015. Sturtevant, who died in May, was known as "the mother of appropriation art" for her "replications" that subtly commented on paintings by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Keith Haring and others. "Sturtevant: Double Trouble" will also appear at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles from March 21 to July 27.
