Mike Bidlo is, with American artists Sherrie Levine, Richard Prince and Jeff Koons in his early years, an exponent of Appropriation Art. Influenced by Pop Art, Appropriation Art consists of making a copy of a well-known work of art, which the artist then considers to be his or her original work. The aim of Appropriation Art is to highlight the concept of the artistic masterpiece and the uniqueness of a work of art. Bidlo 're-creates' paintings by Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Giorgio De Chirico and others, though he never obscures their unique quality. Bidlo began taking part in collective exhibitions in ...

Conceptual Art, Appropriation Art.

Douglas Charles Huebler studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art at the University of Michigan, then at the Académie Julian, Paris. Like numerous young American artists who, despite the wave of Pop Art, remained loyal to Abstract art, his research led him, in terms of his early work, to 'minimal art'; his main preoccupation seemed to be gigantic dimensions. But in less than three years he switched to work which was more or less equivalent to Conceptual Art, and ultimately became one of its leading exponents, along with Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewit, Robert Barry and Lawrence Weiner. His Conceptual Art enquiries focused on 'interpreting' the range of life of forms in multiple signs and places, rather than the internalising or integrity of objects typical of the 'minimalist' genre....

Louise Lawler lives and works in New York. Her paintings and installations play on the contrasts between presentation and perception.

She sought to challenge the role of museums as arbiters of taste, and espoused the anti-institutionalist movement in 1970s art....
