While some artists have mobilized to raise their concerns with Ivanka, New York artist Richard Prince has taken this strategy a step further. Prince hasn’t just objected to Ivanka collecting his work, but has gone so far as to call a work of his a fake and return the money he received for making it. The New York Times considers whether this actually affects the value of the piece. Regardless of its impact on the work it is an important statement. Hopefully he will also create new art specifically decrying Trump.
This is not my work. I did not make it. I deny. I denounce. This fake art. pic.twitter.com/ouHJmVeF8C
