Brazilian artist Vik Muniz developed his art practice as a sculptor in New York in the 1980s. He then began to experiment with drawing and photography. Concerned with the process of ‘seeing’ in a culture saturated with visual imagery, Muniz recreates famous images in materials ranging from dust and chocolate to toy soldiers and sweets. Muniz’s work has been shown extensively worldwide, including a solo exhibition at IMMA in 2004. The film ‘Waste Land’, documenting a project he carried out in Jardim Gramacho, Rio de Janeiro, was nominated for an Academy Award in 2010.
Updated Notice: To ensure the health and safety of the public, the grounds of IMMA and the RHK will be closed from the evening of Wednesday 25 March, until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation.
