A New Vik Muniz Exhibit Opens Today In São Paulo


Verso, the latest solo exhibition by Vik Muniz, opens to the public today at Fortes Vilaça gallery in São Paulo.

The exhibit consists of seven tridimensional pieces of various sizes, made of wood and mixed media, all of which are perfect replicas of the back side of famous works of arts such as Picasso's Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, Seurat's Sunday On La Grande Jatte, and Tarsila do Amaral's O Abaporu. To accomplish this feat, Vik Muniz spent six years photographing and studying those works, with the help of institutions such as MoMA, Guggenheim, and the Chicago Art Institute, as well as artisans and artists specialized in making reproductions.

Verso runs until September 11 at Fortes Vilaça, and it is already on my list of things to do this weekend (which also includes the Transfer art exhibit, a trip to MIS, and a quick stop at Choque Cultural since I haven't had the time yet to visit Zezão's solo show).
