Performance and video artist Andrea Fraser is known for her institutional critique in works such as Official Welcome (2001), in which she delivered a monologue satirizing the bombastic language used when presenting art exhibitions and prizes, or the controversial Untitled (2003), a videotaped encounter in which a collector paid $20,000 in exchange for sex with the artist, posing the question of whether art is prostitution. Elsewhere, she has created color print mash-ups of works by modern and Renaissance masters like a Jackson Pollock and Titian.
