As part of a research project with the Dutch Art Institute and the Van Abbemuseum,  in response to the theme ‘Using the Museum’, Prestige questions the economies integral to the relationship between artist, institution and consumer. Prestige reifies its use of the museum, tracing the processes of symbolic capital between the Van Abbemuseum and me. Appearing as mystified art on the museum wall the work takes commodity form in the museum shop, illustrating the conversion of symbolic to economic capital at the foundation of artistic practice.
