“The Tricks of Cynicism: Richard Prince x Donald Trump” – read the critical text by Luiz Camillo Osorio
In January this year, American artist Richard Prince caused a turmoil in the art world by deciding to disown his portrayal of Ivanka Trump. “This is not my work. I did not make it,” he wrote on his Twitter account, after returning to the US President’s daughter the amount she had paid for the artwork. The controversy guides this essay by PIPA Prize curator Luiz Camillo Osorio, who sees in the event a revolutionary trend: the possibility of the artist to turn art into non-art.
