The exhibition Sturtevant: Image over Image at Moderna Museet allows her oeuvre to display its full range. The presence of Sturtevant’s works becomes nearly site-specific in six of the 18 rooms that are usually dedicated to the permanent collection. The artists whose works she has repeated largely overlap with the history of Moderna Museet and its unique collection of Marcel Duchamp, American pop art and minimalism. Moderna Museet also has a history of confronting authenticity – from important replicas to the project Museum of the Fakes which was shown within the exhibition She – A Cathedral in 1966, and the now internationally infamous Brillo boxes.
This new catalogue on legendary appropriation artist Elaine Sturtevant (born 1930) features 30 works, ranging from her repetitions of works by artists such as Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, Jasper Johns and Felix González-Torres, to four of her most recent large video installations.
