This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

Since the late 1970s, Sherrie Levine has appropriated works by male modern masters—here, American photographer Alfred Stieglitz’s series “Equivalents,” 1922–35—as a means to comment on issues of originality, authorship, and authenticity. Stieglitz made his images of clouds to advance his argument that photography was as capable as painting of producing abstract art. Levine pushes Stieglitz’s images fully into the realm of abstraction by digitizing and pixelating the photographs almost beyond recognition, opening up the works for viewers to make their own interpretations.
