Borrow and Steal: Appropriation from the Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts is a look at a variety of modes of contemporary appropriation, with a particular focus on its uses as a feminist takeover of the historically male-dominated art world, as well as in addressing racist histories.

Throughout Borrow and Steal, viewers will see examples of both mass media appropriation and art historical references. Artists on view include Ellen Gallagher (b. 1965), Guerrilla Girls (active since 1985), Deborah Kass (b. 1952),  Barbara Kruger (b. 1945), Christian Marclay (b. 1955), Roger Shimomura (b. 1939), and Kara Walker (b. 1969).
