Vik Muniz: Pictures of Anything

Vik Muniz:
Pictures of Anything

This comprehensive exhibition of
Vik Muniz (born in Brazil, 1961) covers
25 years of the artist's oeuvre, in which
familiar images from the history of art
and other sources are transformed in
scale and into unexpected materials –
sugar, chocolate, ketchup, diamonds, dust
and garbage – in a process culminating
in a new photographic image. Muniz’
work challenges conventional viewing
and raises questions about appropriation,
original and copy. The exhibition includes
most of his series, including “Pictures of
Chocolate,” “Pictures of Dust,” “Pictures
of Earth” and “Pictures of Garbage.”
