The High Museum of Art in Atlanta opened their Vik Muniz retrospective in February of last year and the exhibition has continued to Indiana University and to the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Monterrey in Mexico. The Mexican exhibit has just concluded and we’ve received word that there are new dates for this popular show – it goes next to the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, VA – opening July 12, 2018, and from there to the Sarasota Museum of Art in January, 2019. Our large-scale Guernica is part of the exhibit and will continue on to Norfolk and Sarasota.
Muniz (born 1961, São Paulo, Brazil) is distinguished as one of the most innovative and creative artists of the 21st century. Renowned for creating what he calls “photographic delusions,” Muniz works with a dizzying array of unconventional materials—including sugar, tomato sauce, diamonds, magazine clippings, chocolate syrup, dust and junk—to painstakingly design narrative subjects before recording them with his camera. His resulting photographs often quote iconic images from popular culture and the history of art while defying easy classification and playfully engaging a viewer’s process of perception.
