Met Nancy Spector and got to ask her about a couple things I was wondering about -
The heavy use of exhibition prints in the Richard Prince show was both a practical and conceptual decision, mostly practical, or at least a practical decision with a full awareness of the conceptual reading. The prints won't be destroyed... they'll be saved and stored for possible future use, and right now those prints are in Minneapolis for the upcoming Walker show. Regarding the fate of Second House, they - the artist and the museum - are not sure what to do with it yet, but it won't be re-made... they're trying to decide whether it should just be torn down or can somehow be preserved as is, maybe inside of a larger clear structure, somehow.
Nancy Spector will be lecturing on Richard Prince, at the Walker, March 22nd.
