John Waters Guest Curates at Walker Art Center
John Waters, original creep, and all around art impresario has been invited by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis to guest curate an exhibition. Using the Walker’s collection and bringing in some of his favorite artists’ work on loan from other collections he brings us “Absentee Landlord“.
Waters’ has re-imagined the galleries as apartments and chosen “roommate” artworks, exploring the different relationships created through curation. He’s chosen some very interesting pieces to juxtapoz against one another and really focuses on the tensions and connections amongst pieces ranging from De Kooning to John Currin.
This just opened on June 11th and will run through March 4th, 2012.
