1. Untitled, 2012, Rachel Harrison

    Rachel Harrison, who is primarily known for her work in sculpture, currently has these four drawings on display at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. They pair images of Amy Winehouse’s ever-changing likeness with iconic imagery drawn from modern and contemporary artworks by Pablo Picasso, Willem de Kooning, Martin Kippenberger, and others. These drawings explore modes of self-presentation and cultural appropriation to coincide with an exhibit called Blues for Smoke, which explores the multimedia emergence of blues and jazz in America in the early 1960s.
