In Shepard Fairey's current show, there's a sign prohibiting the taking of photographs: http://pictureyear.blogspot.com/2009...ey-update.html
Fairey, of course, is embroiled in controversy and litigation over his use of someone else's photograph to create the iconic Obama/Hope image. The link above has another photographer's reaction to Fairey's appropriating one of his photos, of a Chinese soldier at the onset of martial law in Beijing.
The Year in Pictures is an interesting blog.
Re: Irony Alert
Great link, hell of an irony, too, about that "no photography" at the exhibit.
Thanks for posting the link.
