Public Collection assembles a series of images of art works culled from Hollywood and international feature films. The book makes visible works of art often overlooked by the casual viewer during the cinematic experience. Through the act of image appropriation, Public Collection advances the idea of releasing the art works into the realm of the accessible in counterpoint to prevailing contemporary conditions of exclusivity.
