Joywar, What is it good for?

“>Riot, by Joy Garnett, image:

The artist Joy Garnett just had a show called “Riot” at Debs & Co, lushly painted figures in caught in moments of distress or violence. Then she got threatened with a lawsuit by a Magnum photographer for referencing a 1978 image of a guy throwing a Molotov cocktail. Of course, the irony [?] is that, as Garnett says, “my work is ABOUT the fact that images are uncontrollable entities.
It’s about what happens when you remove context and framing devices.” Which means, of course, it’s about getting sued.
Congratulations, Joy. I hope you get sued again real soon.
