"A WORK OF ART IS PRODUCED BY MANY DIFFERENT THINGS. IT ISN’T JUST THE WORK OF AN UNENCUMBERED CREATIVE ACT. [...] ART IS ALWAYS A COLLABORATION WITH WHAT CAME BEFORE YOU AND WHAT COMES AFTER YOU. [...] NO WORK IS REALLY PRODUCED BY ONE PERSON."

Louise Lawler

Step 1

Take a picture of a work of art:

 

Choose a painting, installation, photograph, sculpture, video or something else!

Talk about it

How is art presented, stored, and consumed? To what extent does space affect the impact of an artwork?

Step 2

Look closely at the space and the artwork. How is the artwork displayed?

 

Address this in your photograph.

STEP 3

Edit and present your photograph in a way that emphasizes the specifics of the photographed artwork, or place it in a new context.

Reflect

ART OR THEFT?

What motivates artist Louise Lawler to wander through exhibitions with her camera, photographing packages of cereal, tomato juice, or ketchup?
