Brazilian Vik Muniz is known for unorthodox materials and presentations. His previous exhibitions have included “Pictures of Chocolate” and “Pictures of Junk.” Muniz’s current collection, “Pictures of Magazine 2” consists of nine works constructed using cut and torn fragments from popular magazines.
