“Album” at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York
Sikkema Jenkins & Co. is pleased to present Album, an exhibition of new works by Vik Muniz on view from April 10 through May 10, 2014.
Album, a new series of work by Vik Muniz, utilizes personal photographs in black and white and sepia tones to compose images appropriated from found photographs. This current body of work focuses on the materiality of the photograph, drawing attention to the ways in which the physical character of the image is lost as we shift toward digital technologies and new modes of viewing. Muniz’ choice of subject matter for the final images reflects intimate yet universal narratives — a childhood portrait, wedding and vacation snapshots — made less precious as the minutia of everyday life is rapidly documented and shared online.
