SOLD OUT— Logan Lecture Series: Vik Muniz
Wednesday, November 8
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Photographer and mixed-media artist Vik Muniz is renowned for his visionary engagement with conceptual photography and international art histories. Creative appropriation and subtle subversions are consistent strategies that define his work. A self-described “low-tech illusionist,” Muniz works in exceedingly diverse media: he has photographed tufts of cotton as illusory clouds; images of famous paintings made from sugar, dirt, dust, peanut butter and jelly, chocolate sauce, diamond dust, and trash; and images in the earth and sky made with backhoes and airplanes. He is best known for repurposing everyday materials into intricate recreations of canonical artworks, which he photographs before destroying the originals.
Tickets are $5, free for Members.
Spaces are limited, advance purchase is recommended.
The Descent From the Cross (After Caravaggio) from Muniz's 1997 series "Pictures of Chocolate" is on view in the exhibition Past/Future/Present: Contemporary Brazilian Art from the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo through December 31, 2017.
On November 11 and 12 at 2 pm, join us for a free screening of Waste Land, a film following the creative process of Muniz as he embarks on a project that takes him to the world’s largest landfill located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. Click here to learn more and reserve your tickets.
