Vik Muniz Cac Malaga [Hardcover]
Publication Date: November 14, 2012
The catalogue for a photography exhibition presented by the Contemporary Art Centre in Malaga featuring over 100 works of art by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz, this weighty volume documents the spectrum of materials the artist employs to create works that are both reproductions of famous artworks and stand-alone masterpieces. Optical illusions combine with reality in order to play surprising visual tricks. Sugar, jam, chocolate, rubbish, dust, earth, thread and wire are just some of the materials used With texts by Antonio Soler and Fernando Francés, plus an extensive interview with Muniz by Juan Uslé about the nature of his work.

Vik Muniz: Le Musée Imaginaire [Hardcover]
Publication Date: September 30, 2012
The Collection Lambert in Avignon is housed within the Hôtel de Caumont, an elegant eighteenth-century building whose exterior and interiors are regularly transformed by visiting contemporary artists. In December 2011, the Collection Lambert invited the Brazilian-born, New York-based photographer Vik Muniz (born 1961) to respond to the collection and construct from it his own “imaginary museum,” after the example of André Malraux. Muniz duly took up residence at the Collection and his responses to its holdings were exhibited there from December 2011 to May 2012. In this volume accompanying the show, 110 masterpieces by Piranesi, Goya, Monet, Van Gogh, Cézanne, Picasso, Warhol and other canonical figures are recreated by the artist through incongruous materials such as wool, ketchup, chocolate sauce, pigments, magazines, confetti, dried plants and garbage.
