Richard Prince: Lynn Valley 1
This nicely produced, staple-bound pamphlet is the first in a new series of artist-designed publications, scheduled to come out three times per year. This first issue contains a selection of works by Richard Prince, the influential New York artist who first created controversy in the 1970s by working with appropriated imagery--then a quite radical concept. Weighing in at only 46 pages, this slim volume nevertheless contains representative samples of all of Prince's most famous work: biker girls, nurses, sculptures, paintings, tattoo pornography, jokes, and other assorted incendiary images. The next issue of Lynn Valley will be designed by Cologne artist Johannes Wohnseifer.
