A Study in Midwestern Appropriation

Curated by artist, critic, and Whitney Biennial co-curator Michelle Grabner, A Study in Midwestern Appropriation looks at the humorous and self-deprecating works of heartland artists whose output defies notions of artistic ownership. Artists included in the show from Chicago, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis present a range of image and content-borrowing strategies, from the critical to the open-ended, the humorous imitation to the urgent copy.

A Study in Midwestern Appropriation opens September 29 and runs through January 12, 2014.
