Catalogue Raisonné 1987–2015
Pedro Corrêa Do Lago (Ed.)
Brazilian-born artist Vic Muniz (b. 1961), best known for re-creating imagery from art history and pop culture using unexpected and everyday materials—chocolate syrup, disused computer parts and diamonds, to name just a few—preserves his socially and politically layered “drawings” in large-scale color photographs. Featured in some of the most important collections in the world, from MoMA to the Metropolitan Museum and Tate Gallery, Munitz’s audacious work and way of thinking to date is presented chronologically in this vividly designed boxed two-volume catalogue raisonn.. Comprised of over 1,400 images, an introduction by independent curator Ligia Canongia and interview with Muniz by artist Lisa Duarte and each body of work is accompanied by an informative essay by the artist on his inspirations and methods. In an era when great art has become more familiar to us through photographs than by seeing the work itself, Muniz has created another context to define the familiar, his use of materials offering compelling political and social critique.
