More on MBW: On Satire, Originality and Appropriation

MBW Does Picasso

'curious to get my son's reaction to MBW's exhibit, I returned there once again -- this time, with Dani. He was also fascinated by it all. He noticed that just about every piece has a red dot on it. We asked for a price list; none is available. The particular piece that intrigued Dani was $90,000. And so I've been thinking lots about MBW and decided that he's a genius. Not only does he satirize the entire notion of originality and appropriation -- but he's brilliant at it.
