The exhibition Inappropriation brings together ten artists from the Marieluise Hessel Collection whose works adopt a range of appropriative techniques, such as collage, assemblage, recontextualization, and defacement, while simultaneously summoning and taunting social structures—school, the family, and media, among others—that classify behaviors as inappropriate.
Co-Curated with Marina Caron, Mary Fellios, and Calvin Wang from the Marieluise Hessel Collection at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.
