Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in France
Richard Prince – American prayer



Richard Prince – American prayer
FRANCE
PARIS  •  Bibliothèque nationale de France (BNF)  •  Ongoing
 
 
After the Musée du Louvre and the Château de Versailles where Jan Fabre’s and Jeff Koons’ works were respectively presented, the Bibliothèque nationale de France also opts for contemporary creation, inviting the worldwide famous American artist, Richard Prince. Especially well-known for his cow boy photographs illustrating Marlboro advertising campaigns and for his series of " nurse" paintings, the artist is the best at depicting the American fin de siècle. This is the first monographic exhibition on Richard Prince organised in Paris. The title Richard Prince – American prayer refers to Jim Morrison’s poem. The exhibition focuses on a feature of personality never presented before. Richard Prince is a passionate booklover and a collector of American pop culture and countercultures from the 50s’ to the 80s’. This artistic movement has inspired his work as photographer and painter.Thanks to a musical background - including works by Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan and the Velvet Underground – and to his collaboration with the designer David Adjaye, Richard Prince portrays an American continent scoffing at its myths, introduced in a beat, hippie or punk context.
