Sherrie Levine's 1979 gallery installation consisted of a single projected picture of  mother and child. The presented image elaborated on Levine's contribution to Douglas Crimp's show "Pictures," which was exhibited at Artist Space in Fall 1977. Levine pursued the appropriated form of iconic American silhouettes, while introducing further content in the traditional picture of parent and child. The subject of the work becomes dual and ambiguous as the frame of mind through which the audience is intended to interpret the presented image becomes part of the form.
