Session Name: Appropriation Art: Good Artist Borrow, Great Artists Steal (and Sometimes Get Sued)
MeetingType: Chapter Meeting
Date: 12/15/11
Description: New York Chapter: Appropriation has always been a part of art, some might say the use and re-casting of existing works is one of the defining characteristics of the post-modern age. Through the Fair Use analysis, U.S. copyright law aims to strike a balance between protecting the rights of artists whose works are appropriated and encouraging the creation of new art that necessarily draws on existing works. Is this test sufficient to address the competing interests in the realm of appropriation art?
