ANY UNCLAIMED SEATS MAY BE TAKEN AT THE START OF THE LECTURE.
Rio de Janeiro- and Brooklyn-based artist Vik Muniz has exhibited his work all over the world.
Using unexpected materials to create portraits, landscapes, and still lifes, which he then
photographs, Muniz delights in subverting the viewer's expectations. To quote The New York Times
critic Vicki Goldberg, "Vik Muniz's work tells us that seeing is not quite believing, that perceiving
and understanding are balancing acts, that experience itself is a see-saw. . ." Join us for a lecture
by the artist in which he provides insight into his artistic concerns and practice.
This lecture is the twenty-fourth in the series made possible
through generous gifts by Louis and Lois Fingerman.
