Fair Use And Bowler Hats

Via b.la, this piece on Boing Boing: LACMA's Magritte exhibit - an installation celebrating fair use (Warhol borrows from Magritte, countless artists build on and take from his iconic apples, hats, and cigars, or not-cigars), yet forbids photography.

The ironic relationship of content and policy is striking. Seems like something to check out. Magritte is possibly my favorite artist - and I'm a seasoned musuem photo thief - so this just screams "LACMA Challenge 2007."
