Vik Muniz "Pictures of Junk Series"
His ability to take total junk, spread it out over the floor of an airplane hanger sized warehouse, and turn it into
expensive high art (reinterpretations of stuffy Old Masters Paintings) is hilarious.
Of course, I fell totally in love with these works the first time I saw them. But then again I'm a total
idiot sucker for anything that makes fun at today's state of the Art Market, and our wasteful "throw away" society.
It is a must see for any other Vik Muniz Obsessed Collectors. Here's the SHORT FILM. This show runs till May 27th.
Also there are 2 current Vik Muniz shows at Museums around. A big Reflex : A Vik Muniz Retrospective which is in Miami at the Miami Art Museum and will be touring (San Antonio, Seattle, San Diego, and Montreal)
And then there's another show currently at the NY Long Island's Nassau County Museum of Art. Believe it or not, there's actually an art museum in Roslyn Harbor, Long Island, NY....who knew!!! and Yes.. Dr. Quiz, we MUST stop there on our drive back from Pupschwitz this weekend !
Lastly, Vik has a scheduled show at Sikkema, Jenkins and Co in NYC opening September 9th.
