Richard Prince’s humorous and dystopic examination of American pop culture and its place in our collective consciousness spans nearly three decades, beginning with his first photos of luxury furniture appropriated from ads in Time magazine. The first in a series of three, this talk takes on the masculine mythos in the exhibition. The Cowboys series of rephotographs, the muscle cars, and the Girlfriends series serve as the artist’s high point in his ongoing deconstruction of American archetypes. Led by Jonathan Metzl, associate professor of psychiatry and women’s studies at the University of Michigan.
