Pictures of Ruins

Published by Marsilio Editori.
Text by Luca Massimo Barbero.

A project specially conceived by the artist, inspired by the masterpieces of the Cini Collection in Venice.

An homage to Venice, Muniz's project includes a series of completely new photos inspired by the old masters of the Cini Collection, paintings by the likes of Francesco Guardi, Dosso Dossi, and Canaletto. The artist revisits the theme of the capriccio in a contemporary key, simulating the brushstrokes with cuttings of illustrations from books on the history of art, carefully selected not only for their colors but also for the images they contain. Continuing the tradition of the artists of the 17th and 18th centuries, Muniz has rearranged these elements in a creative way, constructing new images that, through an interplay of allusions and quotations, intrigue and fascinate.

Vik Muniz: VersoVik Muniz: Verso

Published by Charta/Sikkema Jenkins & Co..
Text by Eva Respini, Luc Sante, Vik Muniz.

When a cousin of mine told me his seven-year old could paint a Picasso, I told him probably, but he couldn't do the back, writes Brazilian conceptual artist Vik Muniz about his Verso project. The series consists of obsessively faithful three-dimensional trompe l'oeil reproductions--using period hardware in a 1:1 scale--of the backs of such iconic works as Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," van Gogh's "Starry Night" and Seurat's "La Grande Jatte," including every scratch, scribble, label, trace of tape and faded pencil notation found on the original. For six years, Muniz worked in partnership with the curatorial and conservation departments of New York's MOMA and Guggenheim museums, the Art Institute of Chicago and a team of craftsman, artists, forgers and technicians to realize this project. Verso also introduces texts by essayist Luc Sante and MOMA curator Eve Respini.

Vik Muniz: ReflexVik Muniz: Reflex

A Vik Muniz Primer

Published by Aperture.
Edited by Lesley Martin.

Art objects are inanimate sad bits of matter hanging in the dark when no one is looking. The artist only does half of the work; the viewer has to come up with the rest, and it is by empowering the viewer that the miracle of art gains its force.
--Vik Muniz

An American artist of Brazilian origin, Vik Muniz stands out as one of the most articulate and innovative artists of his generation, equally at home working with images of chocolate sauce, spaghetti marinara, or the detritus of hole punchers. In doing so, he has carved out a unique niche within contemporary photography: one of trickster and philosopher as well as the creator of compelling, delightful images.
Reflex: A Vik Muniz Primer is a privileged, guided tour of the contents of Muniz's pyrotechnic imagination, walking us through each of his major series. From Equivalents, his fluffy, sculpted cotton “clouds,” to his latest color work, Magazines, Muniz accompanies each series with in-depth writing that tickles our minds with amusing anecdotes detailing his inspiration for each; fascinates by revealing his methodology and working process; and enlightens by unveiling the thinking and historical influences behind each image.
