Museum of Contemporary Art - Vik Muniz

Vik Muniz certainly loves to play around with food - making art installations out of spaghetti sauce, chocolate syrup, peanut butter and jelly just to name a few.
The Brazilian artist is offering us the chance to discover over a hundred of his installations through large scale photographs, while focusing on impressive details and compositions inspired by celebrities, events or historical imagery.

On top of using food as the main elements, Vik Muniz also uses common materials like paper punches from magazines, cigarette ashes, toys and even trash.

The Museum of Contemporary Art clearly succeeded in obtaining a great majority of his pieces from the past ten years, which makes it easier to clearly notice the evolution and improvement in Vik Muniz's work.

Contemporary art normally seem complicated or overrated to most people, but Muniz brings it to the next level - a proof that it is possible to make contemporary art interesting and accessible to everyone. Even kids would probably enjoy this exhibition - I know I clearly felt like a child looking at all the chocolate syrup involved in those projects.

On top of that, another exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art is worth a visit - the hyperrealistic and hyperhallucinating paintings of Karel Funk.

Finally, the ultimate convincing reason to go to the Museum of Contemporary night this winter is the free visits on Wednesday evenings from 6PM to 9PM.

Emma puts Lexy in the soil and says it will heal her.
To take matters into her own hands and figure how to get herself
that ring. Wearing our assets really does
work because according to economist Daniel Hamermest, a drop dead gorgeous man can earn $250,000 more than his least-attractive
counterpart over his career.
