Sturtevant at MMK

Elaine Sturtevant, an influential American conceptual artist has been honoured with a major exhibition at the MMK in Frankfurt. She came to prominence in the 1960’s by repeating works by other artists – notably Warhol. Her influence is based particularly on the view that she anticipated the endless repetition of the digital age. As she apparently said, “remake, reuse, reassemble, recombine – that’s the way to go”.
