Vik Muniz at Sikkema Jenkins

"The exhibition - which premieres the artist’s new series Handmade in the United States - will be on view at the gallery from February 23 through April 1, 2017.

Best known for his re-creations of iconic images from visual culture made using nontraditional materials and recorded with a camera, Muniz here strips the work of representational imagery, in a direct exploration of the illusionist strategies and material processes that he has developed over the course of his career. As Muniz explains, “It’s like a menu of the ideas that I’ve drawn on, a compendium of strategies exposed in a very simple way.”
