Appropriation in art has existed for centuries, whether it is referred to as parody, copy, imitation, plagiarism—or even forgery and fake. Since the turn of the 20th century, however, artists have adopted imagery from famous works of art, commodities and the media to make a statement about art’s relationship to and place within our world. By adapting portions of historical works that are well known, or inserting visual quotations from our daily lives, artists are able to challenge and perhaps change our notion of how art is created.

Another Look included works from the Nasher Museum’s collection by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Alice Wagner, Vik Muniz, Alexander Kosolapov and others. The installation was organized by Katie Adkins, assistant curator.
