"A Study in Midwestern Appropriation"

Christopher Bradley, Crust Ring, 2011.
Michelle Grabner, co-curator of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, organized this group show about Midwestern artists' tendency to appropriate other artists' work, often in thoughtful, self-deprecating and humorous ways (instead of just carelessly ignoring notions of copyright). The exhibition features content-borrowing work by a solid lineup of artists from Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee and Minneapolis, in the form of sculptures, drawings, text-based work, photos and more.
