It's Still Appropriated Art
Created by Alexandra Hong & Will Pemulis
It’s Still Appropriated Art is a staged appropriation of Carole Condé and Karl Beveridge’s It’s Still Privileged Art. The work acknowledges and reaffirms the still-relevant commentary made by Condé and Beveridge in 1975, while offering contemporary reflections on art and cultural acts. The work questions and challenges the implications of artistic and cultural appropriation through literal appropriation. Now, more than ever, the personal is political.
