THE DEPOSITION OF RICHARD PRINCE In the case of Cariou v. Prince et al. Greg Allen (Ed.). Bookhorse

French photographer Patrick Cariou accused Richard Prince of copying 41 images of rastafarians and landscapes from his book Yes Rasta, which Richard Prince was using for a series of paintings and collages called the Canal Zone. A deposition is the out-of-court oral testimony of a witness that is reduced to writing for later use in court. In such a scenario Richard Prince had to explain and defend his art, his career, and his decades-long practice of appropriating images made by others. Collected and arranged by artist and blogger Greg Allen, this Q & A must be the most detailed insight about his career and work he ever gave to this day. For a maximum of almost seven hours he had to answer the extensive, confrontational questioning by the attorney of Patrick Cariou- under oath.

Matter Magazine #1. A Modern Journal For Men That Matter. Digital Good Times.

Matter is a new biannual publication that records the ways in which new and developing technology affects culture, lifestyle, fashion, and the arts.

Created by the studio behind the acclaimed arts and culture magazine Kilimanjaro, Matter shares the former’s curatorial approach to design and content. Designed to appeal to a consumer eager to tap into an ever-changing and increasingly sophisticated world, with particular regard to the twin disciplines of high-end design and culture, its inaugural issue is covered by the iconic trip-hop artist Tricky, who talks exclusively to Matter about music, imperfection, and reinvention.

Matter’s unique selling point is the fact that it is the first art and style publication to examine these subjects through the lens of modern technology; in doing so, it brings together the creative and the rational in a way which is rarely seen in the realms of printed matter.

First issue includes: Dieter Rams, Ole Scheeren, Matthew Collings, Pierre Huyghe & William Gibson. / Google’s Creative Director of Data Arts, Aaron Koblin, on digital art. / Iconic fashion designer Rick Owens presents an Anthology Of Colour. / Editor Jennifer Higgie on twenty years of Frieze magazine. / Art & The Automobile, featuring the American artists Richard Prince and Erwin Wurm. / Tate Exhibitions Curator Tanya Barson on the Lyon Biennale. / Celebrated conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner, shot by NY underground photographer Ari Marcopolous. / Photographer – and former director of Dior Homme – Hedi Slimane’s best images of women.
