Pollock and Tureen, Arranged by Mr. and Mrs. Burton Tremaine, Connecticut, 1984
Louise Lawler After Walker Evans, 1981
Sherrie Levine
The image-scavengering of the Picture Generation artists was not restricted to the child's play of popular culture: Louise Lawler stalked the corridors of power in search of hidden treasure, while Sherrie Levine shot over the shoulders of photography's founding fathers not as a dry Duchampian gesture, but in order to create something akin to musical overtones—a buzzing in the space between their "original" and her "copy" that effaced the distance between objective document and subjective desire. - Douglas Ekland
