Since the 1980’s, I’ve been interested in artists who use ready-made images to produce their work. In 1987 when I was responsible for my first curatorship (Second generation images at MAC USP), I dealt with this problem then already part of the artistic environment in São Paulo. At the time, the use of ready-made images was known as “appropriationism” or “quotationism”.
