In 1999 the Frick collaborated with contemporary artist Vik Muniz on a project that resulted in an exhibition of 65 photographs made on site and in the nearby environs of Pittsburgh. This exhibition marked the Frick’s first venture into working with a living artist, and resulted in a significant body of work.

The Frick will restage this exhibition in the summer and fall of 2013 to coincide with the regional focus on contemporary art during the Carnegie International. Since working with the Frick, Muniz has received international acclaim, while his work has continued to be marked by his inimitable blend of wit, historical references, aesthetic excellence, and social relevance.

Accompanied by new interpretive materials, Clayton Days Revisited: A Project by Vik Muniz invites you into a late-19th-century narrative that will open up the way you view our historic site. www.TheFrickPittsburgh.org
