“Misappropriation”

Recent Works by:
Thomas Buildmore & Scott Chasse

mis•ap•pro•pri•ate: (verb) dishonestly or unfairly take for one’s own use

The contemporary art world is quite familiar with the concept of
appropriation. Wikipedia explains that “In the visual arts, to
appropriate means to properly adopt, borrow, recycle or sample aspects (or the entire form) of man-made visual culture…Inherent in our understanding of appropriation is the concept that the new work
recontextualises whatever it borrows to create the new work. In most
cases the original ‘thing’ remains accessible as the original, without
change.” But the debate over legitimacy of image recycling continues
to drag on indefinitely. Despite this age-old controversy, careers of
rockstar artists like Warhol and Fairey have not only withstood
infringement-related obstacles, they have flourished regardless.

With the “borrowing” of imagery so prevalent amongst certain artists
today, is the term “misappropriation” a more appropriate monicker?
